      FOCA Juniors wrap up toy drive for Superstorm Sandy victims


      The national Junior Department of the Fellowship of Orthodox Christians
      in America <http://www.orthodoxfellowship.org/juniors> [FOCA] extends a
      heartfelt "thank you" to one and all who donated toys and gift cards to
      brighten the season for children whose families continue to suffer as a
      result of November's Superstorm Sandy.

      In addition to hundreds of toys, which were mailed directly to the three
      churches involved, nearly $3,000.00 in gift cards and monetary donations
      were received from faithful in parishes in Minnesota, Michigan, Ohio,
      Pennsylvania, New Jersey, upstate New York, and Washington, DC. Members
      of the Bayonne, NJ and Jersey City, NJ FOCA chapters purchased more than
      300 additional toys, which they wrapped and delivered to three parishes
      located in areas hardest hit by the storm---Saint Barbara Greek Orthodox
      Church, Toms River, NJ; Holy Trinity/Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox
      Church, Staten Island, NY; and Saint Paul Greek Orthodox Cathedral,
      Hempstead, NY.

      "It is the sincere hope of all involved that these presents would bring
      some Christmas joy and comfort to the youngest victims of Superstorm
      Sandy," said the FOCA's Mr. Nicholas Ressetar.
