Donate A Toy Christmas Drive

Though COVID-19 may make the collection and delivery of donations look a little different this year, the annual Mark Lee Sr. toy drive is once accepting new unwrapped toys, food gift cards, and monetary donations to help make Christmas merrier for children and families across Jersey City.

Sponsored again by the Captain Mark Lee Fund, a 501c3 charity fund launched in honor of the former Jersey City Fire Captain and 9/11 first responder who passed away in 2014 from respiratory failure, the annual drive has grown to help more than 7,000 needy kids in Jersey City.

Lee, and his wife Cheryl Kelly Lee, were well known for their charity work in Jersey City, especially for an annual Christmas fund drive. At his request, Cheryl, and their son, Mark Jr., have carried on their family patriarch’s legacy since his passing. The fund will be collecting toys and clothing up until Dec. 25. All gifts can be dropped at any of the firehouses throughout the city.
