(UNIONDALE, N.Y.) – Nassau County Legislators-Elect Scott Davis (D – Rockville Centre) and Seth Koslow (D – Merrick) rang in the holiday season at one of the nation’s largest one-day Toys for Tots collection drives, which was held outside Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Sunday, Dec. 3

Undeterred by steady, cold rainfall throughout the morning, a steady stream of donors contributed more than 150,000 individual donations during the event, which was launched 13 years ago by Glen Cove’s Joe LaPadula and Jon Holzer of Martino Auto Concepts with support from Nassau County Legislature Minority Leader-Elect Delia DeRiggi-Whitton (D – Glen Cove). The rain-soaked 13th annual edition of this event was presented by Glen Cove-based not-for-profit First City Project and supported an array of corporate and community sponsors, many of whom are from the automotive world.

With the culmination of the holiday season fast approaching, Legislators-Elect Davis and Koslow are working with community leaders in their forthcoming districts to identify families and agencies that would benefit from Toys for Tots contributions.

“The rain was no match for the tremendous holiday cheer and extraordinary spirit of generosity in the air all around Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum,” Legislator-Elect Davis said. “It was a pleasure to be a part of a wonderful tradition that supports such a worthy cause, and I am excited by how these toys will brighten the holidays of so many deserving families in Nassau County and throughout our region.”

 “What the organizers of this Toys for Tots drive accomplish every year is nothing short of awe-inspiring,” Legislator-Elect Koslow said. “Their philanthropic drive will help provide thousands of families and children with new toys this holiday season – toys that are a symbol of hope for a better future. It was wonderful to see the generosity of Nassau County’s residents and the magic of the holidays on full display at this remarkable event.”
