PORT JERVIS, N.Y. — CVS/pharmacy, the New York State Fraternal Order of Police and dozens of volunteers came together on Dec. 19 at Easter Seals New York's child development center, Project Discovery, to distribute toys, food and coats to families in need.
Thousands of toys were collected to donate to families in need, ensuring that children receive at least one toy this holiday season. Last year, CVS distributed more than 2,000 toys. In addition to the thousands of toys being brought by CVS, the New York State Fraternal Order of Police will provide essentials, such as food for holiday meals and clothing for families to take home.
"The holiday outreach provides a true source of hope and cheer for families in need in Port Jervis. We are extremely grateful for the tremendous support that CVS/pharmacy and the New York State Fraternal Order of Police have shown. Their commitment to the community has been heroic and has allowed us to reach the families here year after year," stated John McGrath, SVP organizational development for Easter Seals New York.
