Where To Turn
More than two years after Superstorm Sandy, there are still families struggling financially to give their children the kind of Christmas they want.
Where To Turn runs an annual regifting program to redistribute gifts to families in need, troops overseas.
For victims of Superstorm Sandy who have continued to struggle in the 14 months since, there is a place they can get toys for their kids for a price that’s right.
A non-profit organization has opened a charity store on Staten Island that will spend the season providing gifts to Superstorm Sandy victims.
Girls whose families were wiped out by Hurricane Sandy can still party in style, thanks to a New York City charity that has collected more than 1,000 prom dresses for the storm’s victims.
“There’s always that gift you find that you’re never going to wear or you’re never going to use and it winds up going in the drawer or in the closet,” said Dennis McKeon, Executive Director of Where To Turn.
Dennis McKeon runs the non profit ‘Where To Turn’ which is behind the holiday toy store. He said the idea evolved after getting piles of individual donations in the form of new toys.
With the holidays right around the corner, there is a goal on Staten Island to have the biggest toy drive that New York has ever seen.
