SPREAD HOLIDAY CHEER WITH SENATOR BEN DOWNING
Downing’s Pittsfield office is a drop-off location for Toys for Tots holiday donations
Pittsfield – State Senator Benjamin B. Downing (D- Pittsfield) is pleased to announce that his district office, located at 7 North Street, Suite 307 in downtown Pittsfield, is once again serving as a drop-off site for Toys for Tots holiday donations. The Senator and his staff will collect donations of unwrapped toys from now until December 17th.
“I am proud to once again partner with the US Marines in this great cause,” said Downing. “It is my hope that a few kids across western Mass will have a little brighter Christmas morning thanks to the generosity of others."
Downing’s office will accept donations of unwrapped toys until December 17th, when they will be collected by the Marines of Machine Gun Platoon, Anti-Terrorism Battalion from the Westover Air Reserve Base in Chicopee. All donations collected by Downing and other drop-off sites locally will be distributed to needy children throughout western Massachusetts by the Marines.
The Senator’s Pittsfield office is open Monday through Friday, from 9am until 5pm. Walk-ins are always welcome; no appointment is necessary to bring a donation or speak with the Senator’s district staff.
The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.
