Senator Skoufis Partners with United Way of Rockland for Winter Coat and Toy Drive

Published

on

HAVERSTRAW, NY – Senator James Skoufis  announced that his office, in partnership with United Way of Rockland County, will be collecting donations at his North Rockland office for a winter coat and toy drive. Due to COVID-19, only new items can be accepted at this time; coats of all sizes, infant to adult, are needed; toys, games, and electronics are needed; and grocery store gift cards are welcome and appreciated.

Donations can be dropped off at Senator Skoufis’ North Rockland office during business days, from 9 AM – 5 PM through December 14. Skoufis’ office is located in the Garner Arts Center at 55 West Railroad Avenue, Building 24, right across the street from Zugibe’s Hardware in Garnerville.

Last year, Senator Skoufis and United Way partnered on the same effort and were able to distribute coats and toys to over 300 children and adults in North Rockland. Senator Skoufis is hopeful that the community can build upon last year’s success.

 

The Coat and Toy Drive is part of United Way’s “2020 Hope for the Holidays” Program. According to a recent study, 41% of Rockland households are struggling on a daily basis to meet their basic needs of food, shelter, and clothing.

“We all know that this year has been especially challenging for families across our state. The ongoing public health and economic crises have left many in North Rockland in need of basic items during the holiday season,” said Senator Skoufis. “Working with United Way of Rockland, I’m confident that our community, as we have always done, can come together to help bring warm coats for those in need and toys for children to brighten their holiday season.”

“We are very grateful to all of the people and groups that joined with us last year in these efforts, and so generously donated new clothing, jackets, shoes/boots, household items, bedding items, electronics, games, and toys,” said Dana Treacy, President & CEO of United Way of Rockland. “This is truly a statement of our community Living United and I thank Senator Skoufis for partnering with us again this year to help get residents what they need during this season.”
