Toy drive seeks goodwill donations

SAYREVILLE: Bridges of Peace, a New Jersey nonprofit organzation, is organizing a toy drive at all Sayreville Public Schools through Nov. 24.

Toys will be distributed by U.S. soldiers to the children of Iraq and Afghanistan.

The organizers hope the toys will help to build goodwill between the U.S. troops and the countries' children.

Organizers are seeking light-weight small stuffed toys not larger than 10 inches in new or like-new condition.

Collections boxes have been placed at each of the eight borough schools.

Money is also being accepted to cover the cost of shipping.

For more information about Bridges of Peace call the organization's president Diane Eleftheriades at (732) 721-6428.

Additional information is also available at the organization's Web site at .
