More toys for tots

A jolly ho, ho, ho! to Assembly member William Colton (D-Gravesend) for collaborating with Toys for Tots to collect toys for less fortunate children. The assemblyman along with his staff, including community relations director Nancy Tong, and district leader Charles Ragusa, participated in the annual gift-giving tradition with Toys for Tots, which is run solely by the Marine Corps Reserve, to provide children from low-income backgrounds with holiday joy.

“There is still time,” said Colton, “to donate new toys to my district office for distributi­on.” Toys can be dropped off until Dec. 21.

District Office [155 Kings Highway, at W. 13th Street in Gravesend; (718) 236–1598].
