LISTEN > Atlantic County Toys for Kids paid a visit to the Harry Hurley Radio Show on Friday Morning. Sgt. Greg Depiano & ‘Trooper’ explained the joys…and challenges… of making Christmas a little brighter for those in need.
Sgt. Gregory DePiano heads the Toys for Kids program. DePiano is a retired Atlantic City law-enforcement officer who’s been involved with Toys for Kids for over 25 years.
“Toys collected in Atlantic County stay in Atlantic County”, so you know that the toys you donate all go to benefit local kids
The organization collects new, unwrapped toys year round, and raises funds on the Atlantic City Boardwalk. You can also help by donating on their Go Fund Me page.
The toys gathered throughout the year are distributed to needy children throughout the Atlantic County area for the holidays. Greg and members of the organization also works with senior citizen groups to bring good cheer to the elderly, often forgotten during the holiday season, he said. The Atlantic County Toys for Kids Program also provide support to families that have lost everything due to disaster.
