Annual MSK Information Systems Toy, Coat and Food Drive Kicks Off This Week

The annual MSK Information Systems toy, coat and food drive kicks off this week. Collection boxes are available at the MSK Library (RRL 105) until Thursday, December 19. 

Other MSK collection locations include:

  • 633 3rd Avenue 2nd and 5th floors
  • Telecom area in Memorial Hospital (MB38)
  • Lyndhurst and Monmouth data centers.

Please participate in any way that you can. All collected items will be distributed to organizations in Queens, Long Island and New Jersey. Many families in our area are still in great need of many things during this holiday season. Last year, we provided food to some pantries that were fully depleted of reserves.

If you would like to participate, and would rather donate money, please see Cynthia Hutchinson (633/5th), Lisa Vreeland (MB38), Donna Gibson (RRL), Mercedes Vila (LDC/MDC) or Karmen Katz (633/2nd)—all money will be used to buy food for the drive.

All non-perishable food is welcome—please check the dates to make sure that all food is healthy and usable. Coats should be new, or used but in good, wearable condition. And finally, toys should be new and unwrapped.

Alternatively, please consider giving to a charity of your choice.

Thanks in advance for your thoughtful participation and a very Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Holidays to all!
