Toy store open in Staten Island for Hurricane Sandy victims

Donate playthings to a special holiday toy store in Staten Island for those affected by Hurricane Sandy.

The city has been full of toy drives to help victims of Hurricane Sandy, but we're extra impressed with the efforts Where to Turn and Senator Andrew Lanza have gone to in Staten Island. The organization and the senator have teamed up to open a toy store in Great Kills—there, Staten Island residents affected by Hurricane Sandy can stop by and shop for holiday gifts for free (visitors are required to bring their FEMA assistance number and ID; there is a limit of two gifts per child). All of the toys—everything from Barbie dolls and baby toys to books and craft kits—have been donated by Staten Island residents, local business and other organizations. The store, which is located at 3948 Amboy Road, will be open through Christmas Eve for shoppers and for those interested in donating.
