CEDAR GROVE, NJ - Please donate to Sebastian Saraiva’s Annual Toy Drive.  Sebastian’s family started this toy drive on the fifth anniversary of his death. It began by word of mouth and Facebook, and because of the generosity of the public, family and friends has expanded to include Cedar Grove, and Verona.

A large scale toy drive will take place on December 12 in Lyndhurst, as advertised on the flier, but local donations to benefit the toy drive will be collected at various locations throughout Cedar Grove. All of the toys are delivered to Newark Beth Israel Medical Center and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Sebastian spent countless holidays in the hospital, and passed away December 30, 2006 two weeks before he turned three. Lets brighten the holidays for children and families spending them in the hospital!

Please contact Sebastian’s mom Michelle at “Sebastian’s Fifth Annual Toy Drive” on Facebook, or email: themauriellos@verizon.net for drop off locations. All toys donated need to be new and unwrapped.
