The 19th annual Queens Chronicle holiday toy drive was an overwhelming success thanks to our readers.

We received so many presents— more than 1,500 — for youngsters at the Metro Family Residence in Elmhurst, Kings Inn in East Elmhurst and for the domestic violence shelter Dove House in Eastern Queens that we were also able to send over gifts to the Saratoga Family Residence near JFK Airport, another city shelter.

This year’s toy drive began before Thanksgiving and picked up steam the last two weeks. We were overjoyed with the response.

We’ve already received thank-you letters from the Kings Inn and Dove House for your generosity.

We would be remiss if we didn’t also thank the outside groups who supported our drive. You’ll see some of them on this page.

Welcome to the discussion.
