Holiday Toy Drive

County Police Department 7th Precinct Holiday Toy Drive Officer Richardson and Legislator Anker

MOUNT SINAI, NY – Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker joined the Suffolk County Police Department’s 7th Precinct and the local community in collecting new and unwrapped toys for a Holiday Toy-Drive. Donation boxes were distributed throughout the community, including to Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker’s office in Mount Sinai. All donations were brought to the Suffolk County Police Department 7th Precinct’s headquarters for distribution. 

I want to thank the 7th Precinct for organizing this Holiday Toy-Drive in our community, said Legislator Sarah Anker. Many families have been impacted by the effects of the pandemic, so it was important to us to come together to spread some holiday cheer to the children and families in our local community.

The Holiday Toy-Drive is the 7th Precinct’s way of giving back to the community in a time of need, said 7th Precinct Community Liaison Officer Frank Raspanti. All of the donations were given to families right here in the 6th and 7th Precincts’ district. We are grateful to our local government, schools and community for helping us to give local families a nice holiday.

The 7th Precinct’s Holiday Toy-Drive began in early December, 2020. With the help of the local community, the department was able to collect over 1,000 toys to distribute to families in need in the district. Donated toys were appropriate for a range of different ages. The department collaborated with 33 schools in the district and, with the help of the schools’ guidance counselors and social workers, distributed toys and gift cards to the families most in need. Additionally, the 7th Precinct sponsored families and hand delivered their toys and gifts to their residences. 

For more information, please call Legislator Anker’s office at (631) 854-1600.
