Westbury, New York – Assemblymember Charles D. Lavine (D–Glen Cove) is pleased to announce a donation of over 400 toys to the Church of the Advent and Westbury Neighborhood Houses.

“The Holiday Season is a time that should be enjoyed by children everywhere. Unfortunately, many children may not be as fortunate. Thanks to the community of the 13th District we were able to provide over 400 toys to the children of Westbury in partnership with the Church of the Advent and Westbury Neighborhood Homes” said Charles Lavine.

In a matter of weeks, Charles D. Lavine was able to get the word out to the community and make a large impact. The neighboring libraries and constituents took action and made it their mission to give the kids of AD 13 a joyous Christmas. The Bryant Library and The Oyster Bay- East Norwich Public Library served as a collection location, they were able to collect toys through donation boxes. Charles Lavine states, “I am grateful for all of the help from our local libraries and constituents they have made this toy drive a success!”
