NYC Council Member Karen Koslowitz Hosts Holiday Drive to Benefit St. Mary’s Kids

Partnering with St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children, Council Member Karen Koslowitz hosted a successful toy drive and helped put a smile on every child’s face at St. Mary’s by donating over 200 brand new toys.

“I was extrememly grateful to all those who helped by donating a toy and or a food item during my 2011 holiday drive. Each toy will put a smile on a child’s face and help them through the day and each food item will help someone who would risk going hungry. Our partners, St. Mary’s and the Food Bank for New York City are wonderful organizations whose work every day truly makes a difference in people’s lives,” stated Koslowitz.

All of St. Mary’s Kids and patient families were very grateful for the generous donations, especially during the holidays.
