Two holiday toy drives at PS 9! — Please donate new/unwrapped toys by 12/12/18
Hello PS 9 Families,
As in years past, the PS 9 community is once again participating in two holiday toy drives to collect new and unwrapped toys for homeless NYC school children and for NYC school children living in low-income circumstances.
Please consider contributing a new unwrapped toy or two to these drives by mid-December, and/or please consider making a monetary donation (link below).
Our parent coordinator, Charmaine Derrell-Jacob, is setting up one collection box for both toy drives in the PS 9 lobby. The deadline for both drives is coming up soon, on Wednesday, December 12. (Last-minute toy donations can be accepted until Monday, December 17, but 12/12 is the very-much-preferred deadline.)
More info on these toy drives:
1. The Gift of Giving holiday toy drive includes a student-powered toy wrapping session at PS 9 on December 13 and a gift-giving event at the Dyker Heights Golf Course a few days later. Please drop off a new unwrapped toy in the collection box in the PS 9 lobby.
2. The Coalition for the Homeless holiday toy drive offers a few different ways to contribute:
*You can drop off a new unwrapped toy in the collection box in the PS 9 lobby (see the list of suggestions by age group below).
*OR: You can make a monetary donation:
*OR: You can purchase a toy online through the organization’s Amazon Wish List:
(Perhaps you can even shop through “the Amazon button” on PS 9’s website as you finalize your toy purchase to maximize the impact of your donation.)
Thank you very much for your support of these holiday toy drives!
