State Senator Roxanne Persaud hosted a toy giveaway at Hebron Baptist Church, 450 Fountain Avenue, on Thursday, December 13th. The holiday event was held in partnership with the New York City District Council of Carpenters (NYCDCC), the Carpenter Contractor Alliance of Metropolitan New York (CCA Metro) and No Kids Left Behind, Inc.
“There is no better time to be charitable and spread cheer than now, during this season of giving, and perhaps no greater feeling than seeing a child’s face light up when given a brand new toy. No kid should be without a present for the holidays,” Senator Persaud said. “I thank the NYDCC, CCA Metro, No Kids Left Behind, Inc. and Hebron Baptist Church for their gracious donations, making this event happen and bringing well-deserved happiness to these children.”
Kids were grateful for the toys, and families enjoyed a joyous night in celebration of the holiday season.
