To help families and children who are undergoing medical care at Stony Brook Children’s Hospital, Senator Mario R. Mattera (2nd Senate District) is hosting his 3rd Annual Holiday Toy Drive. From now through Wednesday, December 20th, Senator Mattera and his staff will be accepting new and unwrapped toys, stuffed animals, books and other kid-friendly items for children aged 2 through 16 at their office in Smithtown.
Senator Mattera’s office will deliver all donated toys, books and stuffed animals to the children receiving care at Stony Brook University Children’s Hospital, Catholic Health System and the Northwell Health Dolan Family Health Center.
All residents who wish to participate are invited to bring donations to Senator Mattera’s District Office, which is located at 180 East Main Street, Suite 210 in Smithtown during regular business hours.

I invite all who are able to join our effort to visit my office to help make the holidays a little brighter for those who will spend their holidays in the hospital,” stated Senator Mattera. “We are so thankful to the men and women of healthcare who care for our youngest residents and thank them for allowing us to bring a smile to their young patients.”
