Last week we reported [3] on Councilman Lew Fidler, the 41st Assembly Democrats, and Toy Drive founder Bryan Lee’s 12th annual ‘Toys For Tots’ toy drive. The annual drive is holding satellite drives all month long, and the Teen-Driven Toy Drive Kick-Off held last week set a wonderful example as teens from all different cultural backgrounds banded together for a good cause.

The Teen-Driven Toy Drive Kick-Off was held at the Kings Bay Y last week. The teens and participants are from the Kings Bay Y, Hebrew Educational Society, Turkish Cultural Center, Brooklyn Amity School, 41st Assembly District Democrats Club and Councilman Fidler’s staff, a diverse coalition representing the best of our local youth doing their part to help those in need. One such selfless volunteer is Kings Bay Y teen Paula (pictured above), who was participating for the first time this year.

The toy drive is still currently accepting donations, and if you wish to give in person, you can bring a new, unwrapped toy to the Toys for Tots box at the Y, located at 3495 Nostrand Ave, or by bringing it to the Grand Finale Party at the Democrats Club at 2952 Ave. R, on Thursday night, December 20 between 7 and 9 p.m. Donations are also accepted by mailing a check payable to Community First Toy Drive- 41st A.D. Dems Club c/o Bryan Lee, Executive Director 2664 Dorothy Street Bellmore, NY 11710. You can also reach out to Toy Drive founder Bryan Lee by calling (917) 846-1944.
