From December 1st – December 20th the Hospitality Department’s club, the Society of Hosteurs (Manhattan and Old Westbury Chapters), will hold its annual Covenant House Toy Drive.
Each year the Society of Hosteurs collects brand new toys for the children of Covenant House to help put a smile on their faces during the holiday season. All brand new toys are welcomed for these beautiful children in need. The age range of the children is from infancy to approximately seven years old. The toys will be delivered to the children by the Society of Hosteurs and advisers.
If you would like to help contribute to this worthy cause, you can drop off your denoted toy (or toys) in the decorated boxes that will be located (**Please do not gift wrap the toys**):
