Guttenberg held its first toy drive on Thursday, Dec. 14, 2017 raising funds and collecting toys at BottleCo in North Bergen. Attendees got two free drinks for every donated toy, plus a free buffet dinner, and the place was packed with residents and friends having a great time while supporting a great cause.
Over 100 toys were donated, with other attendees electing to donate cash. The toys will be distributed to local kids in pre-K through third grade at the Guttenberg recreation holiday party at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 15 at Anna L. Klein School, 301 69th St.
More than a dozen bikes will be raffled off at the event, along with scooters. Every kid who attends the party will receive an age-appropriate gift.
Additional funding for the toys was provided by the Galaxy Towers Condominium, local residents and businesses, and town employees.
