Winter Events - Including Toy Drive and Letters to Santa

-A A +A


Brooklyn Parks & Recreation will be accepting donations for our annual Toys for Giving Toy Drive beginning November 1st. New, unwrapped toys or other suitable gifts may be dropped off at the Recreation Office or the Town Hall. Cash donations are welcome. Make checks payable to Brooklyn Parks & Recreation. With many families finding themselves in financial need again this year, we are anticipating a large request for assistance. Donations are ongoing throughout the season, but are needed by December 12th, to be used for this year's program. All items collected will benefit Brooklyn children who are in need of assistance.

Request form for Brooklyn children only: click here to submit online or print from website.


Children wishing to receive a letter from Santa may reach him by sending a letter beginning

 November 1st with their name and return address to:

 Santa c/o Santa's Elves

29 Canterbury Road, Brooklyn, CT 06234

All letters must be received at the above address by December 8th, so Santa has time to write back!
