Annual Toy Donation Coordinated by the Woodworkers Committee
For the past twenty-six (26) years, members of the woodworking group have donated toys to help families who are unable to provide gifts to their children - ages 1-14, both boys and girls - during the holidays. Members either make the toys or donate toys they purchase. Members also donate wrapping materials. The elves at St. Rose of Lima Church in North Syracuse wrap the toys and organize their delivery. The toys and wrapping materials are donated during the annual holiday event on the first Wednesday in December. For 2018, that event was on December 5th and it was held at the Doubletree Hotel, 6301 NY 298, East Syracuse [Exit 35 off the NYS Thruway / Just east of Carrier Circle]. Toys are not just what we all consider toys, but also include jewelry boxes, writing items, blankets, knitted hats & gloves, etc. Below you can see photos of toys donated in 2018 and in the past several years.
