Senator Mattera’s 2022 Toy Drive Delivers Holiday Spirit Throughout Region

Senator Mario R. Mattera (2nd Senate District) celebrated the success of his 2022 Toy Drive by delivering toys to local hospitals this week. Senator Mattera and his staff have been accepting gifts from residents and organizations in the area throughout the past month and were thrilled by the generosity of those who donated.

“Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to help us deliver the warmth of the season to the young children who will have to spend this time in the hospital. The generosity of everyone including family, friends, neighbors and residents is truly heartwarming and I hope it shows all the children how much they mean to all of us,” stated Senator Mattera.

Senator Mattera teamed up with staff and administrators at Stony Brook Children's Hospital, St. Catherine of Sienna in Smithtown and the Northwell Health Dolan Family Health Center in Greenlawn to make sure kids across the 2nd Senate District had a nicer holiday.

“We thank all the doctors, nurses, administrators and support staff across our region for all they do for our community and for our families. We know many of them will spend time away from their families during the holidays to be there for their young patients and we want to make sure they know how much that sacrifice is appreciated,” added Senator Mattera. “We wish everyone a very Happy Holidays!”
