Over 7,300 Toys, Coats and School Supplies Distributed this Holiday Season Says Gov. Cuomo

Governor Cuomo Announces More Than 7,300 Toys, Coats And School Supplies Distributed Statewide This Holiday Season

Donations Collected as Part of Annual Drive for Toys, Coats and School Supplies

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the results of New York’s annual holiday toy, coat and school supply collections which took place across the state over the past several weeks. Members of the Governor’s administration organized collections across the state and are distributing 7,348 toys, coats and school supplies to communities in need. For the first time, donations were also collected by mail to provide another option to participate amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“During this trying year, New Yorkers have shown up for each other like never before, and I am proud that our annual toy drive tradition continues to bring hope to those who need it the most,” Governor Cuomo said. “I am grateful to those who volunteered and donated this year, many of whom face hardships of their own due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is the spirit of the holiday season, and this is the spirit of New York.”

A number of state agencies and organizations collected new unwrapped toys, coats and school supplies that were provided by businesses and individuals and either mailed in or brought to drop-off locations across the state. Walmart provided a donation of $15,000, which purchased 1,211 toys which are being distributed across the state.

Volunteers from the China General Chamber of Commerce also participated in collecting 420 toys for New Yorkers – the third year in a row that the CGCC has participated.
