Mayor Nicholas Sacco and the Board of Commissioners in conjunction with NB C.A.R.E.S. will be distributing toys to families in need on Dec. 20, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the North Bergen Recreation Center, 6300 Meadowview Ave.
Many residents and businesses have donated time, money, and presents to help make this year’s toy drive a success. Bar One held an event on Thursday, Dec. 14, offering discounts on food and drinks to anyone who brought toys. Over 100 toys were collected, and NB C.A.R.E.S. t-shirts were sold, with all proceeds going to purchase toys.
There’s still time to contribute gifts to this great program benefiting local kids. The drive will continue until Dec. 19 with collection points located at multiple locations throughout North Bergen. Please bring new, unwrapped toys to one of the following locations:
- North Bergen Health Department, 1116 43rd St., 2nd fl.
