This holiday season will be a little brighter for hundreds of area children thanks to a massive Marine Corps Toys for Tots collection drive at Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment.
This year the Meadowlands teamed up with NY Jets wide receiver Quincy Enunwa to donate all the collected toys to Harlem Grown.
Harlem Grown is a charitable organization in Harlem whose mission is to inspire youth to lead healthy and ambitious lives through mentorship and hands-on education in urban farming, sustainability, and nutrition. For additional information, please visit www.HarlemGrown.org.
Hundreds of toys were collected tonight and guests can continue to bring toys in for donation through Saturday, Dec. 8.
Larry Roman, a Standardbred horse owner, and the Meadowlands Racetrack both donated over $2,000 in toys for the drive.
“It was great partnering with Quincy Enunwa and Harlem Grown this year,” said Jason M. Settlemoir, GM/COO of Meadowlands Racing and Entertainment. “We are on pace for an exceptional collection drive and I am so proud of our community and employees that are donating this year.” (Meadowlands)
