Toys For Tots Drive Drop Off in Bronxville

Toys for Tots, Buying Locally

With the holidays swiftly approaching, I can't help but think of those still struggling to put their lives back together after Sandy.

I've had friends across the tri-state area who have lost homes entirely or suffered thousands of dollars worth of damage. 

This year more than ever, it's important to give back. 

I'd like to remind everyone to please drop off any packaged, unopened toys at one of the many drop-off locations around town - especially our office, located at 26 Paxton Avenue. 

And may I suggest buying locally this year.  Bronxville has not been immune to the economic downturns for small businesses indeed many local business institutions have been forced to close their doors, pushed out of business by local chains. 

My favorite place is the Womwrath Bookshop - a quick stop in before or after work always makes my commute more pleasant!

Katherine, Womrath Bookshop is one of my favorite places too. And this Saturday at 1, there will be a special event there. I tweeted this today: Book signing http://is.gd/4dmKFg DROP ME OFF IN HARLEM mystery by Sondra Luger http://lugerlandarts.com Sat., 1-2:30 pm @WOMRATH Gail
