The United States Marine Corps Toys for Tots program will kick off its 17th year at Roosevelt Field. On Tuesday, November 14, more than 75 students from Stratford Avenue Elementary and Stewart School in Garden City will present toy donations to members of the US Marine Corps. For six weeks, the children have been gathering the donations as part of an annual effort to give back to those who are less fortunate during the holiday season. To say thank you, Roosevelt Field has arranged an exclusive meet and greet with Santa Claus for the kids, and Auntie Anne’s will provide them with pretzels and lemonade.
On-air personality Leeana from K98.3 Morning Show with Steve and Leeana will emcee the event, which will include a color guard and attendance by the fire department and elected officials.
