State Representative Vincent A. Pedone (D- Worcester) announced he will be holding a very special “Toy & Book Drive” on Wednesday, December 15, from 6 pm – 8 pm, at Coral Seafood (225 Shrewsbury Street, Worcester).
This annual event is sponsored by Register of Deeds Anthony Vigliotti, School Committeewoman Dianne Biancheria and Representative Vincent A. Pedone. Our efforts have been successful in providing toys and books to disadvantaged neighborhood children during the holiday season for the past 19 years.
Last year we collected more than 1,000 toys and books, thereby allowing us to spread holiday cheer to many children and families in our community struggling during these trying economic times. A warm thank you to all who have helped make past drives a success.
This year, there are even more families in crisis, trying to make ends meet. With that in mind, I am asking you join us at Coral Seafood and bring one or two toys or books to our “Toy Drive.” This event gives us an opportunity to share a token of joy with a needy child this Christmas season. It also provides us a chance to join together, reconnect and share some holiday cheer with old friends.
