Clovis Point Vineyard & Winery on Long Island is accepting toys for the well-known TOYS FOR TOTS organization until Saturday, December 10. Wine enthusiasts and visitors are encouraged to drop by the winery tasting room with a new and unwrapped toy.
The collecting of toys for TOYS FOR TOTS will end with the winery’s 2016 Holiday Open House scheduled for 3 to 7pm.
Clovis Point Vineyard & Winery’s website explains the TOYS FOR TOTS mission. “The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted. The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.”
While visiting several wineries on Long Island, Terry and I stopped by Clovis Point to taste wines and discover their story. Our article about Clovis Point Vineyard & Winery is available online.
Do you remember a special toy from your Christmas? If you will be visiting Long Island soon, add a little joy to your heart and to a child’s Christmas by stopping by Clovis Point Vineyard & Winery with a new toy for a less fortunate child.
While dropping off the toy, be sure to stay for a wine tasting and perhaps purchase a bottle of wine for one of your holiday meals.
