Toy Drive for the children in need


Donations support Jerseys Cares’ Annual Frosty’s Friends program

December 13, 2016 — The New York Jets in conjunction with Jersey Cares and Clorox will hold a Toy Drive on December 17, 2016, at MetLife Stadium before their game against the Miami Dolphins. Fans are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy to benefit Jersey Cares’ Frosty’s Friends program that will be collected at all gates upon entering the stadium.

As part of Clorox’s support, the company has bought 70 tickets to the game and donated them to Jersey Cares to distribute to underserved families this holiday season. There are millions of children in need of joy and cheer all over the world – and so many here in our own New Jersey backyard. This year, Jersey Cares received more than 3,000 letters from children who may not normally receive any gifts during the holidays. Thanks to the thousands of people who have answered the children’s letters, and your help with The Frosty’s Friends Toy Drive, Jersey Cares hopes to brighten the lives of 6,000 children this year.
