continued Toy distribution will be held at the Adirondack Community Outreach Center on Route 28 in North Creek on the evening of Thursday, Dec. 13 and the morning of Saturday, Dec. 15. Those families in need of toy donations should call the Outreach Center at 251-3481 for times of distribution.
“It’s like the holidays come early on the 13th,” Brown said. “We put everything out, and people come. There’s definitely spirit in the room.”
The Outreach Center’s toy drive is unique in that they allow grandparents to come and pick out presents.
“We live in an area that there are so many elderly people that are on a fixed income that they might not have enough money to give their grandchildren a toy or anything for Christmas,” Brown said.
The kids don’t actually attend the toy drive; it’s the parents and the grandparents who pick up the toys.
“Parents are allowed a large toy, a medium toy and stocking stuffers,” Brown said. “Grandparents are only allowed a medium-sized toy.”
