Nanuet man packs truck full of toys for needy

Posted: Updated:

For the past 20 years, Frank Politano and a few of his friends have organized holiday toy drives for the children of low-income neighborhoods.

This year, the group packed a truck with 1,500 toys and gift cards for needy families in the Bronx, where Politano grew up.

Politano says they never solicited donations or received a corporate sponsorship. It was word of mouth that brought in donations from all over the country, he says.

The $15,000-worth of toys will be delivered just in time for the holiday.
