Hance Family Foundation Hosts Second Annual Toy Drive


Drop boxes located throughout Village of Floral Park

The holiday season is a time to reflect on all the joys and blessings in our lives and a time for kindness, generosity and selflessness. It is comforting to know that in a time of economic difficulty, generosity does not falter. The Hance Family Foundation is sponsoring its Annual Toy Drive to ensure that the season of giving reaches as many children as possible.

Last year, the 2010 HFF Toy Drive resulted in more than 2,000 toys and gifts being donated and distributed to needy children, ages spanning from infant to 16-year-olds, in Floral Park, nearby neighborhoods, and several areas in Brooklyn, the Bronx and Manhattan. All of the gifts were hand-delivered by The Hance Family Foundation and their volunteer team of hard working elves.

Please consider donating an unwrapped toy or gift to The Hance Family Foundation Toy Drive. All donated toys will be hand delivered by the HFF elves to needy children in the same areas as last year. If you would like to donate, several local Floral Park businesses have volunteered to be “toy-drop” spots, making it convenient for everyone to drop off a toy for a needy child this holiday season. Please bring unwrapped children’s gifts (ages: infant through 16 years of age, preferably gender-neutral) to one of these convenient locations.

Toy-drop boxes are currently available at the following locations until Monday, Dec. 19: Fiore Restaurant, 142 Tulip Ave., Floral Park; Jack Duggans Pub, 145 Tulip Ave., Floral Park; J.W. Becker Florists, 225 Jericho Tpke., Floral Park; J.
