NS Toy Drive Gives Children Something to Look Forward Every Year

Friday, 25 December 2009 00:00

On Dec. 18, the North Shore School District donated bags full of toys to the children of Schneider Children’s Hospital. This was made possible through North Shore’s 22nd Annual Toy Drive, hosted by Dr. Rob Gerver.

In 1988, Dr. Gerver started this toy drive. This program, once exclusively run by the high school, has become a districtwide event over the years, broadening the spirit of giving across all of the schools. Dr. Gerver, who lives right by the Schneider Children’s Hospital, would jog past it each day, and came up with the idea to help these children and lift their spirits through an annual holiday Toy Drive. He felt this would be a most fitting endeavor for the children’s hospital.

Toys and a Prayer From The Glen Cove Anglers

However the Anglers’ enthusiasm was dampened as they learned that the beneficiary of the yearly toy collection, Saint Rocco’s Parish Reverend Father Aaron was overcome by a serious illness a week earlier and wouldn’t be present to collect the donations, nor say a prayer and bless the club as he has done the last couple of years.
