This holiday season, the New York City & Vicinity District Council of Carpenters and the Carpenter Contractor Alliance of Metropolitan New York delivered over 425 toys to kids throughout Brooklyn. Partnering with local elected officials and community organizations, the union carpenters and contractors of New York participated in 5 toy drives throughout Brooklyn in addition to events throughout the city. After a difficult year for so many in New York City, union carpenters and contractors are doing their part to rebuild our city and give back to those in need.
Holiday toy drives in Brooklyn were done in partnership with elected officials, including Mayor Eric Adams, Representatives Carolyn Maloney and Nydia Velazquez, Senator Roxanne Persaud, Senator Julia Salazar, Assembly Member Jaime Williams, Assembly Member Maritza Davila, and Council Member Chi Ossé.
