Nobody is more involved in the Gowanus Community than my friend Betty Lester. She works tirelessly to represent her community and to make the lives of her neighbors better.
So it's not a surprise that she is helping to organize a toy drive for the children of Gowanus..
Please take a few moments to read her message below. And please, donate a new toy.
No child in our midst should have to spend the Holiday Season without a bit of cheer.
GOWANUS NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION's FIRST ANNUAL TOY DRIVE
While we realize that in today's economy, everyone's finances are limited, we are petitioning all who can to donate or contribute at least one gift to an underprivileged child, boys and girls aged 1-12 years. We ask that all gifts be safe and unopened.
Councilman's Stephen Levin district office
410 Atlantic Avenue (near Bond Street)
Monday-Friday between 10 AM and 5 Pm
For more information, contact Betty Lester at :
BEJAY919 at Yahoo dot com or 718 243 1252
Toys, books and games accepted.
This is the season of giving... so please help us bring a little happiness to a child this Holiday Season!
Thank you and Happy Holidays!
