The Friends of Gerritsen Beach Library is assisting with the Secret Sandy Claus Project, by operating as a toy donation location. The Secret Sandy Claus Project is the brainchild of Gravesend resident Michael “Sandy Claus” Sciaraffo, who decided to don a Santa suit and distribute toys to children who lost their own in Brooklyn, Staten Island, the Rockaways, and parts of New Jersey, in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.
If you can, please donate new, unwrapped toys at the Gerritsen Beach Library, 2808 Gerritsen Avenue, from now until December 20. Library hours are Mondays from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Tuesdays from 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Wednesdays through Fridays from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The library is closed on Saturdays and Sundays.
