Calling all wannabe Santas theres no need to don a red suit to make a difference in a childs life this holiday season. Just check out one of the many local toy drives that local businesses, legislators, and non-profits are pulling together to make sure that every child has a happy Chanukah or Christmas especially those affected by Hurricane Sandy.
Among them: Margaret Spicer, owner of Distinctive Toys in Fair Haven, knows the holiday season may not be a great one for her business, so she is channeling her efforts to help those in need. She’s banded together with the Knights of Columbus, Life Guard Ecumenical Foundation (LGEF), and Rebuild/Recover to create Sandys Toy Shoppe,” where affected parents can come and select new toys for their children.
The event comes together beginning Saturday in Eatontown.
