2 years after Hurricane Sandy, many of our friends are still struggling from the damage of Hurricane Sandy.  Quite a few CYO friends have lost their home & all their belongings.  Many are still not in their home that is being rebuilt.  Many of their homes will not be rebuilt.  So many of us have been blessed and lucky.  We try to reach out to friends and strangers who are still recovering.

2 years ago for the 1st time, CYO established a “Christmas Toy Drive” for the children affected by Hurricane Sandy. We distributed nearly 800 toys, books, clothing, gift cards, etc.  donated to us by YOU.  We sent items to Long Beach, East Rockaway, Lindenhurst,  Bayport & Seaford, to name a few.

Last year we delivered nearly 1,000 items to children in need.

We continue with our new tradition.  The 3rd Annual CYO “Christmas Toy Drive” is about to begin.  Items will be distributed to those in need and there are many.

PLEASE DONATE TO OUR DRIVE.   People need everything.  Gift cards are great too.

Here are a couple of ideas:

One of our donors had every guest at their Thanksgiving table bring a toy to be donated to CYO!

Coaches – ask each child on your team to bring a toy to a particular practice or game.

Everything can be mailed or shipped or dropped off at:
20 E. Cherry Street
Hicksville, NY 11801

We will collect until December 15 or so.   Please join in!
