During this festive time of year, it is truly better to give than to receive. With that in mind, Senator Joseph P. Addabbo Jr. has made his offices drop off locations for charitable and community organizations collecting goods for the less fortunate. Community members can drop off new unwrapped toys, toiletries, socks and lightly worn coats during normal business hours at his Woodhaven Office, located at 84-16 Jamaica Avenue in Jamaica or his Middle Village Office at 66-85 73rd Place in Middle Village. For more information on the specific items being collected and which organizations are participating, please see the list below.
