Another hugely successful DiDomenico Foundation Toy Drive took place last Thursday at Kowloon in Saugus. The Foundation purchased more than $23,000 in toys through the generosity of many friends and supporters. In addition, hundreds of toys were also brought to the event. The room was bursting with toys highlighted by the amazing wall of toys in the front of the room.
“We want to thank everyone who made our toy drive the largest one we have ever had,” said State Senator Sal DiDomenico. “Our main focus has always been to increase the number of toys we have purchased and collected to ensure that we make the holidays a little brighter for thousands of children in our communities. This year we filled four U-Haul trucks! We are grateful for the tremendous outpouring of support and for our amazing group of friends who volunteer each year.”
The Foundation’s Toy Drive is one of the largest of its kind in the area, and it is supported by countless members of the community: from small business owners to the Kowloon, which hosted the event; Everett Hardware and U-Haul Boston, for the trucks to transport the toys; radio personality Hank Morse; entertainment guru Fred Balboni; and so many people in the community who contributed to the success of this event.
