Peace Islands Toy Drive for newborns to age 18

Peace Islands Institute of Connecticut, together with IRIS (Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services), is running a Toy Drive Event with the hope of putting a smile on the face of the new refugee children who joined the community this year.

Gifts are for newborns to age 18 and can be dropped off through Jan. 8 at 9 Research Drive in Milford.

Toys (no board games, stuffed animals, with small pieces, with weapons) should be unwrapped and be in the $25 range.

Check donations can be mailed to IRIS at Iris, 235 Nicoll St., New Haven CT, 06511 or PII at PII 9 Research Drive, Milford CT, 06460.
