The Long Beach Martin Luther King Center (MLK) is hosting its annual holiday toy drive and needs your support. Each year the MLK Center distributes toys to 250 less fortunate families in the City of Long Beach. Unfortunately, this year they are short on their toy collection and would love your support. They are seeking unwrapped toys for boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 10. Toy collections will continue from December 12th – 20th. Please drop off any unwrapped toys at the Martin Luther King Center front desk between the hours of 8am and 7pm. Long Beach Martin Luther King Center is located at 615 Riverside Blvd, Long Beach, NY 11561. On December 22, 2016 thanks to the generosity of you and others, a team of volunteers will distribute the toys to the children of Long Beach and make their holiday a little brighter.
