The Star-Ledger: Steve Weatherford Joins Newark Mayor at Local Toy Delivery Stop

Steve Weatherford joined Newark mayor Luis A. Quintana on his trip to deliver toys to the New Community Harmony House on South Orange Ave. in Newark today.

The New Community Harmony House is a "transitional living facility" for homeless families around the city. The toys were brought courtesy of Second Chance Toys, a local non-profit that donates lightly-used toys around the state.

Weatherford, along with the mayor, spent the afternoon playing with the kids and providing a little holiday cheer around the 102-apartment facility.

"It was such a special experience to come into the New Community Harmony House homeless shelter with a Santa hat on and bags full of toys in my hands and to see the kids just light up," Weatherford said, via a press release. "I spent some time with them – playing with their new toys – and I felt right at home because it’s what I do every day with my kids. No child should ever go without toys and I am happy to do my small part with Second Chance Toys to make that a reality." Full Article
