Assemblymember Lavine Expresses Gratitude for Successful Toy Drive

Glen Cove, New York – Assemblymember Charles Lavine (D-North Shore) is thanking the community for donating to his annual toy drive to benefit the Glen Cove Equal Opportunity Council.

“I want to offer my sincerest thanks to the multitude of friends and neighbors in the 13th Assembly District who graciously donated.In coordination with the Glen Cove Equal Opportunity Council, my office collected hundreds of fabulous toys which were distributed to families here in Glen Cove. It gave me great joy to see the smiles and excitement on children's faces after receiving toys this holiday season. These are tough financial times as we continue to suffer the after-effects of the pandemic and try to secure the sense of normalcy we once had. Now more than ever we are counting on the generosity of the community. I want to thank every single person who made a contribution, no matter how big or small, making this toy drive such a tremendous success. Finally, I want to express my appreciation to the Oyster Bay-East Norwich Library in Oyster Bay, the Bryant Library in Roslyn, and Glen Cove Public Library for serving as collection sites. I also want to wish everyone a happy and healthy holiday season.”
