Last year, the Island was struck by Hurricane Sandy; unfortunately many of our friends and families lost their homes and belongings. CYO hosted the "Christmas Toy Drive" for those affected and Tom Crimmins Realty, with many of our friends, helped support. This year makes no difference.
On behalf of the Director of Catholic Charities of Staten Island, Joe Panepinto, his assistant Michael spoke about this year's drive.
The drive produced over 500 toys and were distributed mainly to the community. Majority of the toys were given to an afterschool program, Physical Fitness and Wellness Program, and children in Port Richmond.
"People are especially generous this time of year," said Michael. "We counted a lot of our donations from Continental Mortgages and Tom Crimmins Realty."
CYO's mission is to provide recreational, cultural and spiritual activities to the young people of the Archdiocese of New York.
Here at Tom Crimmins Realty, we help support non-profit organizations in trying to do our part. A massive thank you to everyone who has donated toys and have been involved with this year's drive.
