Toy drive for District 3 to be held Dec. 10

NORTH PROVIDENCE - A toy collection effort to benefit the schoolchildren of District 3 will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 10, at the Lymansville VFW Post, 354 Fruit Hill Ave. The toy drive and an accompanying hot buffet will not be held on separate days as previously announced.

Two local School Committee members, Steven Andreozzi and Stephen Palmieri, are running the toy drive to benefit children of the District 3 they represent. They say they want to collect as many new unwrapped toys for children age 5-12 before the event as possible.

Toys can be dropped off any time at D. Palmieri's Bakery, 624 Killingly St. in Johnston, or at the pair's Dec. 10 event, which will run from 6 to 8 p.m. Though there is no cost, Palmieri and Andreozzi are asking that everyone bring a toy or other gift.

The toy drive will culminate with the arrival of Santa, who will help distribute the toys on Saturday, Dec. 14, at 10 a.m.
