With the holidays quickly approaching, State representative Stephanie Kifowit, D-Oswego, is announcing that she is a partner with The Marine Corps Toys for Tots for another year to be a drop-off location for new toys. Donations will be collected at her district office at 1677 Montgomery Road, Suite 116 in Aurora, through December 9.

“Everyone deserves to enjoy the holiday season; we can help bring joy and celebration to families in the community,” said Kifowit. “Unfortunately for some families, the holiday season may be particularly difficult. It can be a very sad and depressing time.”

Kifowit, a U.S. Marine Veteran, has been a partner with Toys for Tots every year to help bring the joy of the season and send a message of hope to the community’s children who need some holiday cheer. Kifowit will be collecting new, unwrapped toys at her office from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., Monday through Friday until she has to turn the toys into the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves Toys for Tots organization December 9.

“This holiday season, it is important that we give back to the children in our community who can use a toy during the season to let parents see a smile in their children’s faces,” said Kifowit. “I encourage everyone who can to stop by my office and donate a gift of their choosing. You never know how far gestures of kindness can go to help rebuild the family spirit.”
