Where to Turn Sandy Holiday Toy Store

To All,

As you may know we are currently running the biggest toy drive in our 11 year history and this year the toys will go to the victims of Sandy.

We are reaching out to schools and businesses both locally and nationwide with our appeal.

We estimate that we will have thousands of toys available.

If you would like to get involved please click the link below.

In order to get the toys to the Sandy victims we are looking for commercial space centrally located on Staten Island where we can open up a Toy Store Distribution Center.

The toys will be available to any family impacted by Sandy (they will need to provide a FEMA # and proof of address in an impacted area)

We will also arrange delivery to families that can't make it to the store.

The store will be staffed by volunteers for the entire month of December.

So all we need now is a space.

If you know of any large unoccupied spaces in central Staten Island that would donate the space for a month or at a nominal rental please let me know.

We will be partnering with Senator Lanza in this effort and hope to get other elected officials and organizations involved.

Please let me know if you would like to be involved.

In the meantime toys can be dropped off at the

UPS Store (Pathmark Shopping Center)
150-L Greaves Lane # 312
Staten Island NY 10308

Just tell them they are for Where to Turn

Thank you in advance for your help.

Dennis McKeon
