Tis this season of giving! Our December blog post this month highlights the program “Toys for Tots”. Toys for Tots is a program run by the United States Marin Corps to distribute toys to children whose parents cannot afford to go holiday shopping.
Joey’s Fund is always looking for ways to help our community and pay it forward. This year we were fortunate to receive a rather large toy donation from our founder’s brother, Mr. Darren DeCarlo, who was a former employee of Toys “R” Us. Before the company closed, he was able to get hundreds of toys, strollers and more which he donated to Joey’s Fund.
Joey’s Fund took the toys and partnered up with the Closter Volunteer Ambulance and Rescue Corps this year! The Closter Volunteer Ambulance and Rescue Corps will be spending the holiday season going around to local hospitals giving all the toys, clothes and more that were donated.
If you’re interested in donating toys, please call your local fire department or police department to see where you can drop them off to do your part in paying it forward. The Team at Joey’s Fund wishes you and your loved ones a very happy and healthy holiday season!
