urely, most of us ensured that the children in our lives received the awesome presents on their gift list for the 2020 holiday season. One way to make room in our homes for all the shiny new 2021 toys, while making a difference in another child’s life, is to gift excess toys (in new or like-new condition) to charity. There are several charities in Suffolk County on Long Island that accept toy donations, such as Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island in Islandia, Savers stores, and Salvation Army Thrift Stores. Please call ahead of time to ask whether there are any Covid guidelines for donations and for other rules about the qualifying condition for donated goods. Help start 2021 off right for children in need in your community by donating to charity!
