STATEN ISLAND, NY, November 15, 2008 – Northfield Bank announced today the start of the its 14th Annual Holiday Toy Drive.
Help brighten the holiday season of a child from your community by bringing a new, unwrapped toy for boys and girls between the ages of newborn and 12 years to any Northfield Bank branch in Staten Island, Brooklyn, or New Jersey now thru December 15th.
All toys will be distributed to needy children through local charities in the respective communities.
“For the past 13 years Northfield Bank customers, friends, and employees have helped bring joy to needy children in our communities,” stated John Alexander, Chairman, and CEO of Northfield Bank. “This year presents a special challenge due to the economic stress that has affected so many in our community. We encourage everyone to reach out and touch the life of a young child by putting a smile on their face.”
In order to allow sufficient time for the charities to prepare the toys for distribution, all toys must be received no later than December 15th.
