Congresswomen Carolyn Maloney Helps U.S. Marine Corps Distribute Toys For Tots At The Roosevelt Island Youth Center

Congresswomen Maloney and RI Youth Center Director DeFino At Roosevelt Island Toys For Tots Distribution

Received the following message from Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney's office.
Roosevelt Island, NY, December 23, 2009 – U.S. Representative Carolyn B. Maloney this evening joined Executive Director Charles DeFino and staff at the Roosevelt Island Youth Center to help distribute “Toys for Tots” at the Center. Every year, Congresswoman Maloney helps the United States Marine Corps (USMC) distribute thousands of Toys for Tots to children at youth centers and in public housing developments in New York’s 14th Congressional District. This year, the USMC named the Congresswoman’s late husband Clifton Maloney an Honorary Vice Chairman of the Toys for Tots program in New York City.

“For decades, Toys for Tots has given gifts to children who might otherwise go without during the holiday season,” Maloney said. “This program is one of the Marine Corps’ most cherished missions and another example of the many ways our men and women in uniform serve our nation day in and day out.”

“I am touched that Toys for Tots is making my husband an Honorary Vice Chairman,” Maloney said. “Clif was a Navy veteran and I know that he would be honored that fellow members of the military are recognizing his service.”

"2009 USMC Toys for Tots Honorary Vice Chair and Navy veteran Clif Maloney lived life to its fullest. I know that his wife, the Honorable Carolyn Maloney, and their two beautiful daughters will continue to serve their community and the underprivileged children of New York,” said Major Chuck Kilbride of the USMC. “We at Toys for Tots are privileged to donate these new toys to the kids of Roosevelt Island as a symbol of hope on behalf of all the members of the Marine Corps. God bless America."

The USMC’s “Toys for Tots” programs collects new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December, and distributes those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in communities throughout the United States. Every year, Maloney and her staff help the USMC distribute toys to underprivileged children throughout New York’s 14th Congressional District, which includes Roosevelt Island and most of Manhattan’s East Side and western Queens.

So, nearly 20 percent faster, and overall responsiveness was slightly fleshlight higher, though admittedly, it wasn't about fashion. Because stretch-marks arise beneath your belly button, specially in expectant women as well as a leader; fleshlight someone who can put together and run a meeting, that they apply to the area infected.
