Assemblyman Billy Jones (D-Chateaugay Lake) announced that his office will be collecting toys for families in need this holiday season as part of his annual toy drive. Jones is partnering with the Christmas Bureau, an all-volunteer organization that helps to provide Christmas celebrations for low-income families in Clinton County.
“Christmas is a time for our communities to come together and support our neighbors in need,” said Jones. “For families who are going through a difficult period, the holidays can mean choosing between celebrating with gifts or putting food on the table and paying their bills. I encourage all who are able to take part in my annual toy drive to help uplift those who are struggling right now and spread holiday cheer to North Country families this winter.”
Jones’ office will collect unwrapped toys for all ages through Dec. 16. Gifts can be dropped off at Jones’ district office at 202 U.S. Oval, Plattsburgh, NY 12903 between 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. The toys will be donated directly to the Christmas Bureau. For questions regarding this drive or any other community issue, please contact Jones’ office at 518-562-1986 or by email at JonesB@nyassembly.gov.
