Gersh Academy to Help Distribute 10,000 toys to Children in Puerto Rico

Box of Toys to be Shipped Down to Children in Puerto Rico after Hurricane

Staff at Gersh Academy International in Puerto Rico are helping to distribute 10,000 toys collected by Operation Toy Story, a group put together to send aid to children in need in the wake of Hurricane Maria.

Kevin Donnelly, a colleague and friend of Kevin Gersh, has set a goal to collect 10,000 toys to be delivered on the day of Los Reyes Magos, or Three King’s Day, which is a major holiday in Puerto Rico, celebrated Jan. 6.

Donnelly was inspired to help after learning that many children were still living in shelters months after Hurricane Maria. He turned to his network of other Long Island entrepreneurs and business owners for help.

Once in Puerto Rico, the gifts will be distributed by staff at Gersh Academy International.
