Riverhead Volunteer Ambulance Corps is conducting its third annual toy drive to collect presents for kids at Cohen Children’s Medical Center in New Hyde Park, a member of Northwell Health.

The ambulance corps started the toy drive in 2017 as a way to say thank you to Northwell Health for its support of the ambulance corps and the services the health system has brought to the local community.

The toy drive continues today from 12 to 4 p.m. at RVAC headquarters, 1111 Osborn Avenue, Riverhead.

Donations of new, unwrapped toys are appreciated, said RVAC’s Zilnicki-Ceckowski. “Come meet your local volunteers and enjoy some hot chocolate with us.”
