Toys for Tots drive at Merrick Bagel Boss this weekend


Residents are invited to bring new, unwrapped toys to Bagel Boss (2101 Merrick Road, Merrick) this weekend in support of Toys for Tots. The drive is open on Saturday, Nov. 21, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 22, from 9 a.m. to noon.

“This has been a very hard year for many of us — let us all make it a happier holiday season for the kids,” said Ronald Steiger, the public relations director of John F. Kennedy High School’s alumni association. “We will gladly accept a new, unwrapped toy or a check made out to ‘Toys for Tots Long Island.’”

This program is sponsored by John Mascaro of Merrick Bagel Boss and Steiger of Realty Connect USA. For more information on how to help, call (917) 807-3394.
