On Thursday, the Islip Town Democratic Committee hosted a Holiday Celebration Toy Drive at the Snapper Inn in Oakdale. The Committee members, community leaders and Former Councilman Christopher Bodkin were in attendance.
Event organizers, Executive Committee Member Karen Peirce and Chairman Gerry Pallotta selected the venue to support a local business who sustained damage and lost revenue caused by Hurricane Sandy.
After the event, members dropped off the toys to Sabrina Lacy commander of VFW Post #6431 in Brentwood for their Meet Santa and Mrs. Claus event being held on December 23rd.
