Brandywine Assisted Living - Christmas For Crisfield Toy Drive

Posted: Updated:

FENWICK ISLAND, Del. - A local assisted living facility is collecting toys for area children. This Saturday, Brandywine Assisted Living at Fenwick Island will be collecting new, unwrapped, toys for families in Crisfield who are recovering from Superstorm Sandy.

Other accepted donations include wrapping paper, gift bags, and tape to wrap up the gifts. Brandywine is hoping to fill a 24 foot truck with donations. Organizers tell us the items will then be taken to Maple Shade Youth and Family Services for families to wrap and take home, which sets them apart.

Kathy Jacobs, of Brandywine Assisted Living, says  "one of the things a lot of charities do is they will donate gifts, pre-wrapped, and label it "girl 8-10" or "boy 10-12", something like that. They've already been through so much and lost a lot, so to give them some dignity and love back into their Christmas is good."

Organizers say that they are collecting toys for children of all ages, but older kids, like those aged 12 - 18 often get neglected in these drives. All items can be dropped off Saturday at Brandywine Assisted Living or at the alternate location, Pizza Hut in Ocean Pines between 10 AM and 3 PM.

Not only are they collecting toys, if you have a spare artificial Christmas tree, you can donate those as well! Tree trimmings, like lights and ornaments are also being collected. For more information visit Sandy Clean-Up Help Across Delmarva's facebook page
