The Greenburgh Nature Center is collecting toys for needy children in Westchester through December 17.

The Greenburgh Nature Center is helping Westchester families in need this holiday season. The center is holding a holiday toy drive to provide needy children in Westchester with a toy or gift for the holiday.

Looking to donate to a local cause this holiday season? The GNC is seeking folks to give new, unwrapped, children's toys or gifts. Those who want to make a donation to the local cause can drop off the toys now through December 17. The center is accepting new, unwrapped gifts of a $10-$20 value for children ages newborn to 14-years-old. Folks can leave donations at the GNC Manor House.

All the toys and gifts will be given to the young patients of Open Door Family Medical Centers, according to Vicki Sherman of the Greenburgh Nature Center.
