  • On January 5th, Senator Charles J. Fuschillo and his team delivered his annual massive "after the holidays" toy collection. The 18 heaping commercial laundry bins of toys provide a full year's supply of toys and games to be utilized by the Child Life Program in caring for Winthrop's young patients. The toys, which are collected through generous community donations, were delivered personally by Senator Fuschillo after the holidays to help hospitalized patients enjoy a little extra seasonal cheer and take their minds off being in the hospital.
