The toy drive will run through Dec. 14.

Those interested in donating toys for the cause should deliver them to Braunstein’s office at 213-33 39th Ave., Suite 238, in Bayside. They can also be dropped off at the Queens Community Board 11 office at 46-21 Little Neck Pkwy. in Little Neck.

“This December, please consider brightening the season for a local family in need by donating a new and unwrapped toy to my office’s annual holiday toy drive,” Braunstein said. “I thank you in advance for your generosity and wish you and your family a healthy and happy holiday season.”

Numerous Queens organizations, institutions and charitable programs will be receiving the donations. Each of them serve local children and families in need.
