Open Door Foundation Launches Holiday Toy Drive

in Featured Events, Holiday Giving

Every year the Open Door Foundation collects toys for children from families of less fortunate means to make sure that every child in our community will receive a new toy during the holiday season. Santa Claus visits all five Open Door sites to personally deliver the gifts to the children. In order to fill his sleigh with enough toys, Open Door is accepting donations of new toys, valued between $10-$20, through December 10th for children ages newborn to 14 years-old. With a goal of collecting 2,500 new, unwrapped toys, Open Door is accepting donations at all Open Door Family Medical Centers Sites:  Mt. Kisco: 30 West Main Street, Ossining: 165 Main Street, Port Chester: 5 Grace Church Street, Sleepy Hollow: 80 Beekman Avenue, Brewster: 155 Main Street, Suite 101.  To make things easy, Open Door has also created online Wish Lists at Amazon, Toys ‘R’ Us and Kohls:   Amazon.com: “Open Door Holiday Toy Drive”, Toysrus.com:  ‘33242665”, Kohls.com: ‘Registries / Special Days 2598805’.  Monetary donations are also being accepted and Open Door Elves will take care of the shopping. Checks made payable to Open Door Foundation may be mailed to Alicia Ward, Open Door Foundation, 2 Church Street – Suite 101, Ossining, NY 10562. Credit card donation may be made at:  www.opendoormedical.org , please be sure to note “Toy Drive” in the comment box.   For those with a knack for wrapping, Open Door is also looking for volunteers to help organize and wrap the gifts which will be distributed by Santa himself when he visits each Open Door health center in December.  For more information about the Toy Drive and volunteering contact Volunteer Coordinator Alicia Ward at 914-502-1468 or award@odfmc.org.  To find out more about Open Door, visit www.opeendoormedical.org.
