Assemblyman Michael A. Montesano (R,I,C-Glen Head) joined the United States Marine Corps Reserve for their annual Toys for Tots Holiday Toy Drive. Volunteers collected the donations on Monday, December 13. The donations will be given as gifts to needy area children.

“The holiday tradition of giving is alive and well in our community,” said Montesano. “People were very generous and their kind donations will make great Christmas gifts. I was proud of their willingness to give during these trying economic times; it just further proves the community’s commitment to helping people in need. I also would like to extend my gratitude to the volunteers who collected the donations and the Marine Corps Reserve who sponsor this great program. Your willingness to give will bring happiness to a child. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas.”
