Every year Neighbor to Neighbor distributes toys and gift cards during the holiday season, thanks to the generosity of local shops, groups and residents who donate new, unwrapped toys in various locations or drives around town.

This year, they were able to distribute nearly 1,000 toys and gift cards to Greenwich residents who are clients of Neighbor to Neighbor.

This year, the newly opened toy store on Greenwich Avenue, Funky Monkey Toys and Books, held a special shopping day with a percentage of proceeds donated to Neighbor to Neighbor.

Funky Monkey also offered a special, curated “Neighbor to Neighbor Wish List” for the month of December. Customers could select and donate a toy in the Funky Monkey toy store.

On Dec 23, Jared Greenman presented a check to the new Neighbor to Neighbor Executive Director, Margaret Tjimos Goldberg, for $1,170, which represented the proceeds from the special shopping day.
