Goshen, N.Y. – Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus announced on Friday that Santa’s Toy Box, the annual toy drive for disadvantaged children in Orange County, will begin collecting donations of new toys and games over Thanksgiving weekend and continue through December 21st.
“Generosity is what the holidays are all about,” Neuhaus said. “There are families in Orange County that unfortunately can’t provide gifts for their children and even the smallest gift can make a difference. I encourage residents who can, to donate a new, unwrapped toy so children who wouldn’t otherwise, can experience the joy of receiving a gift this year.”
Donations will be distributed to families in Orange County via organizations such as the Farmworkers Community Center, and the Emergency Housing Group. Santa’s Toy Box has been in operation for 33 years and is sponsored by the Orange County Department of Parks with invaluable assistance from New Winds Opportunity Center and Rehabilitation Support Services.
