‘Tis the Season for giving back.
On Tuesday, December 22, Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis delivered toys for the children of soldiers at the Fort Hamilton Army Base, 101st Street and Fort Hamilton Parkway. The giving train kept rolling, as it then made a stop at the Guild for Exceptional Children’s Early Childhood Center, 260 68th Street, where Malliotakis handed out toys to the children there as well.
The special delivery was part of Malliotakis’ annual holiday toy drive to benefit local children. The toys provided were collected locally in a joint effort with Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church, the Dimitrios & Georgia Kaloidis Parochial School, and Salam Arabic Lutheran Church.
Malliotakis expressed her appreciation to those involved in what she refers to as a “great holiday endeavor,” noting, “Once again, the residents of Bay Ridge have helped me bring holiday cheer to the children of the Guild and the sons and daughters of our military men and women. We’re all so very proud to organize this toy drive every year and bring smiles to the faces of children in our community.”
