Senator Mattera Sponsoring 2nd Annual Holiday Toy Drive To Bring Holiday Cheer To Local Children

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 a 2nd Annual Holiday Toy Drive. From now through Wednesday, December 21st, Senator Mattera and his staff will be accepting new and unwrapped toys and gift cards for children aged 2 through 16 at their office in Smithtown.

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. It is requested that donors avoid any toy guns or knives out of respect for the children.

Senator Mattera’s office will deliver all donated gift cards and toys to the youngsters receiving care at Stony Brook University Children’s Hospital.

“The holidays are so special to our families and our community and it is so important that everyone is able to share a smile this season. This year, as many struggle with costs of living and inflation, I invite all of our residents to join me to make a difference and to help to make the holidays a little happier for all," stated Senator Mattera.  "We hope that everyone who is able will bring a toy or gift card to enjoy the gift of giving. And we thank everyone who donates.”

Any resident who has a question or who needs further information should contact Senator Mattera’s office at 631-361-2154 or email the office at if you have any questions or need any further information.
