The Briarwood Action Network’s fourth annual holiday toy drive for children living at the Briarwood Family Residence, a transitional housing facility in the community, will conclude next week.

The toy drive, which kicked off Nov. 16, is ending Dec. 14. The non-profit civic group is accepting toys, games and books for children up to age 17, but cannot accept electronic or battery-operated toys. The collection boxes are located in apartment buildings and at Middle School 217 at 85-05 144th St.

On Dec. 12, neighbors will have an additional opportunity to give to the drive by bringing their donations to the Briarwood Library at 85-12 Main St. from 2 p.m. through 5 p.m.
