Community Support Runs Strong for Annual Toy Drive in Quincy

Posted: Dec. 03, 2018 Donate Today!

On Saturday, December 1, staff from the Germantown Neighborhood Center, the South Shore YMCA, the Quincy Police Department and Friends Of Quincy Firefighters IAFF Local 792 gathered together at Walmart on Falls Boulevard for their annual toy drive to support South Shore YMCA Germantown Neighborhood Center and Quincy families. Thanks to all those who donated, hundreds of toys were collected, helping to make the season brighter for those in need throughout our community!
