Filthy Frogzz To Hold Toy Drive/Holiday Party
Filthy Frogzz on Hawkins Avenue in Ronkonkoma will be holding a toy drive and holiday party on December 15. This is the bar's 7th annual toy drive to be distributed to needy families all over the Sachem School District. A full buffet and drink specials will be served to those who attend bearing gifts.
You don't have to be a bar patron to help out either. The bar is accepting toys from people who would rather just drop off a gift, so long as donations are dropped off before December 17, when the toys will be distributed to the community. Toy donations are for kids ranging in ages 1 month to 18 years.
