Project Toy Family Service League

Project Toy

“In a world where you can be anything, be kind.” - Jennifer Dukes Lee

The Islip Public Library is collecting toys and other items for children and teenagers again this holiday season for the Family Service League’s PROJECT TOY program. You can help to make a family’s holiday brighter by donating new and un(gift)wrapped toys, books, clothing, etc… for a child or teenager. The collection box is located at the Adult Reference Desk. Donated items need to be received in the Library by Thursday, December 13 please. The items will be made available to families in need by The Family Service League at their annual December event.

Check out The Family Service League website at www.fsl-li.org to learn more about all the programs and services that this not-for-profit human services agency provides to families on Long Island.

Also, look for other giving opportunities at the Library later this winter. We’ll be collecting winter coats as well as mittens, hats, and scarves for those in need. See our January-February newsletter for details.

Sometimes it can feel like a cold and difficult world out there, let’s stick together! Thank you in advance for your generosity!
