The Queens Courier played Santa, distributing hundreds of toys for the youngsters of the South Queens Boys & Girls Club.

The Queens Courier got a sneak peek of what Christmas morning would be like for the youngsters of the South Queens Boys & Girls Club (SQBGC).

On Thursday, December 15, Courier reporters — playing Santa and his Christmas elves — distributed hundreds of toys to the club’s underprivileged kids.

Founded in 1957, SQBGC strives to help young people improve their lives by building self-esteem and developing values and skills during critical periods of growth. The group’s mission is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those from at-risk and disadvantaged circumstances.

The Courier would like to thank the All-American Car Club and constituents of Assemblymember Ed Braunstein in District 26, who gave toys from their own toy drive.

Check back with queenscourier.com and see our December 22 issue for the full story.
