Every year Dr. Costagliola runs a party for his patients and asks them to bring a new unwrapped toy.

This Saturday we will once again be picking up the toys he has collected.

St. John's is currently running a toy drive with Notre Dame Academy and will make these toys avaialble to us as well.

It looks like we will have well over 1,000 toys when all is said and done



These toys will be shipped to victims of disaster throughout the country and will be shared with children in our local hospitals.



We are also asking local parishes and congregations to let us know of families in need

If your school or organization would like to support this effort please let us know.

If you would like to drop off a toy you can do so at

150-L Greaves Lane
Staten Island, NY 10308

or at the offices of Senator Lanza or Assemblyman Mike Cusick

Senator Lanza

3845 Richmond Ave.
Suite 2A
Staten Island, NY 10312
(718) 984-4073

Assemblyman Mike Cusick

1911 Richmond Ave
Staten Island, NY 10314
718.370.1384

We are looking for additional drop off locations and will post as we receive.

We will also be continuing our Re-Gifting for a Good Cause Program so if you happen to get a gift that you will never wear or use, we will take it off you hands. What we can will be distributed and those we can't will be sold at a flea market in the Spring, with all proceeds going to cover shipping costs for our support programs (for details click on the link below).

We will accept toys at any time but will be kicking off the Re-Gifting for a Good Cause Program on the ABC Saturday Morning Program on 1/11 with Michelle Charlesworth.

As always your support is greatly appreciated and once again we would like to thank Dr. Costagliola, his staff, patients, the faculty, staff and students at St. Johns and Notre Dame and everyone else who participated.
