Twin Parks residents receive free toys ahead of the holidays
Bronx residents affected by the Twin Parks fire got a bit of holiday cheer through a toy drive.
Kids poured into the Fordham plaza, going to different stations to get gifts that included nail polish toys, teddy bears and more.
The Grinch and Santa Claus both made special appearances for the kids, and the Fordham Business Improvement District partnered with Council member Oswald Feliz, Rep. Ritchie Torres, and more local advocates and elected officials.
The holiday toy drive has been going on for the past few weeks across the Bronx, but today’s toy drive was solely for those still recovering almost one year after the fatal Twin Parks fire.
