Christmas for kids at borough hall

Dozens of children in need received tender tokens of love when Borough President Marty Markowitz joined the New Jersey Nets and the Salvation Army for a holiday gift drive at Borough Hall.

Hoop stars Darryl Dawkins and Terrence Williams helped present “hundreds of toys” to youngsters whose families are served by the Salvation Army, and who were feted with a program of cheer which included a merry mingle with Kris Kringle.

The toys were among more than 1,100 donated by the Barclays/Nets Community Alliance %u2013 a partnership between Barclays Bank, the Nets and Forest City Ratner Companies %u2013 to the Salvation Army. The charity also funded children’s holiday parties at each of the five main Salvation Army centers serving Brooklyn.
