Cross Bay Physical Therapy, has partnered with Toys for Tots, a national charitable organization that collects toys to give to needy children. They will serve as an official Toys For Tots collection center. Residents of Howard Beach, NY and surrounding areas are invited to donate toys any time between November 14th and December the 12th. The Marine Corps will be coming by December 13th to pick up the donated toys for local distribution.
We do ask toys are new, unwrapped, and remain in their original packaging. Toys for children ages 0-2 and 12-13 of either gender are in the most demand. Some examples of appropriate toys for the 0-2 range are teething rings, plush toys, ring towers or anything that would stimulate their senses. For the 12-13 range, appropriate toys include board games, books, jewelry, and anything to prepare them for their teenage years. Make a toy donation!
The office is also organizing a food and supply drive for emergency relief in the Philippines. Please bring in toiletries, baby care items, and canned foods for donation. Items will be sent to the Philippines to help those hurt by this terrible disaster. When you donate both a toy and a relief item, you can fill out a chance to win an iPod! For more information about making a donation call the office at (718) 835-0084, or visit the office between the hours of 9am-7pm Monday through Thursday or 9am-4pm on Fridays. The office is located at 157-02 Cross Bay Boulevard, Suite 202, in Howard Beach, NY.
