Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced a statewide holiday drive to benefit families in need across New York. Donations of new unwrapped toys, coats and school supplies are being sought to assist community-based organizations during the holiday giving season.

"New Yorkers are tough, but they are also kind and willing to step up to help those in need," Governor Cuomo said. "This holiday season I encourage all New Yorkers to continue this great tradition and share some of the joy of this season with the less fortunate among us." 

The Office of General Services has set up drop-off locations across the state for businesses and individuals to bring the new unwrapped toys, coats and school supplies, which will be distributed to families in underserved communities throughout New York.
