Kiddie Academy Greenlawn Has Banner Year for Toys for Tots

Kiddie Academy of Greenlawn, located at 787 Pulaski Road, had a historic ‘Toys for Tots’ drive this year. The Academy has been an authorized drop-off location for the past 6 years, but this year the toy collection has hit an all-time high.

“I am overwhelmed by the generosity of our enrolled families and our neighbors in the community who have donated toys,” said Karen Krupka, Owner. “We have always had a sizable amount of donations, but this year our families and neighbors have more than trippled what we have collected in the past. It is so heartwarming to know that so many children will be receiving a gift this year.”

According to their website, Toys for Tots is a top rated charity of which over 97% of monetary donations goes to the mission of providing toys, books and other gifts to less fortunate children. The toy drive has ‘wrapped up’, but monetary donations can still be made at www.toysfortots.org.

“Generosity is Kiddie Academy’s social skill for December, which is why we sought out ‘Toys for Tots’. It’s not just about tangible objects though, people can be generous with their time and attention as well,” said Ms. Krupka. “Giving is a selfless act that benefits others and makes us feel really good about ourselves. Thank you to all our families and community neighbors who have made donations this year, your generosity is very much appreciated.”
