Vallone's Little Helpers



On December 21, Councilman Paul Vallone and his Student Ambassadors joined the Auburndale Soccer Club and Dwarf-Giraffe Athletic Association as they distributed hundreds of toys, collected through December, to the kids at St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children, provider of long-term care to children with medically complex conditions. “If there was any event this week that truly embodied the spirit of Christmas, it was this one. With the help of the Auburndale Soccer Club, the Dwarf-Giraffe Athletic League and my student ambassadors, we were able to collect hundreds of unwrapped toys for our toy drive for St. Mary’s,” said Vallone. “Thank you to everyone who donated a toy and helped out! I would also like to personally thank my student ambassadors Abbas Husain, Hongju Choi, Kean Gibbons, Jennifer Kim, Erika Donis, Rawlanda Hinds, Daniel Bosko and Josh Santis for their hard work and dedication to this toy drive. Our combined efforts truly helped make this a very special holiday for all of the wonderful kids at St. Mary’s!” On December 21, Councilman Paul Vallone and his Student Ambassadors joined the Auburndale Soccer Club and Dwarf-Giraffe Athletic Association as they distributed hundreds of toys, collected through December, to the kids at St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children, provider of long-term care to children with medically complex conditions. “If there was any event this week that truly embodied the spirit of Christmas, it was this one.
