Hoboken Police Toy & Food Drive

Hoboken Police and Fire “Fill the Bus” Toy Drive

Hoboken Police Toy Drive ThanksThe 2nd annual “Fill The Bus” Toy Drive, hosted by the Hoboken Police and Fire Departments was extremely successful. With the help of the generous Hoboken community, about 120 children will be able to have a new toy this Christmas. The toys were donated to many places including the Tomorrow’s Children Fund, The Hoboken University Medical Center, Children of Essex County Inmates, Bears for Hugs in Little Ferry, and Stevens Institute of Technology.

We couldn’t have done this without the help of the Hoboken Motorcycle Club, The Hoboken Special Needs Parent Group, and the Wallace School Peer Leadership Program.

We would also like to thank the toy drop off locations at Baby Gap (222 Washington St), Servpro of Hoboken and Union City (51 Fairmount Avenue, Jersey City), The World of Wonder Day Care (133 Harrison St) and Work it Out Fitness Boutique (603 Willow Avenue).

We would also like to give a special thank you to Mrs. Durando from The Wallace School, Dena Russell from the Hoboken Special Needs Parent Group, Captain Nick Goldsack from the Hoboken Fire Department, Hoboken A&P Manager John Bincoletto, and Ms. Malenda from Hoboken High School. Without them, this wouldn’t have been possible. Lastly, thanks to everyone who donated toys to give to the children in need and to the members of the Hoboken Police and Fire department for donating their time. It was much appreciated. “We like to do things like this to be an integral part of this community,” said Sgt. Melissa Gigante.
