Washington Heights community students who participate in the Armory College Prep for middle school students were Santa’s little helper. They collected more than 300 gifts for the Armory Toy Drive.

By collecting more than 300 toys for the first ever Armory Toy Drive, the Armory Foundation produced countless smiles on faces of Washington Heights children for the holidays.

The toys were given to the Armory PAL Center, which is comprised of children from the Washington Heights community. To keep with the theme of the Armory, many gifts were sports-related, such as basketballs, footballs, soccer balls and volleyballs. Said Armory Foundation President Dr. Norbert Sander: “The Armory is delighted to begin an annual tradition to provide a whole array of toys for our PAL children here in Washington Heights.”
