The Flanders Northampton Volunteer Ambulance Company is hosting a toy drive in memory of Gracelyn Perkowski, the 4-year-old child who died following a car accident on Flanders Road Jan. 13.

All toys will be donated in Gracelyn’s honor to Stony Brook University Children’s Hospital. Toys must be new and sealed. Stuffed animals will not be accepted due to hospital COVID-19 protocols.

Drop off will take place Sunday, Jan. 23 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Flanders Northampton Volunteer Ambulance headquarters, 641 Flanders Road, Flanders NY 11901.

In addition, the ambulance company will be collecting donations for the Perkowski family. FNVA will match the first $500 in donations received.
