Christmas party & toy drive - Wednesday, December 19, 5:30pm to 9:30pm

This year in Allston and Brighton there will be approximately 413 children and teenagers that will not be receiving a Christmas Gift because the shortage of toys and gifts that are available from organizations like Toys for Tots and The Make a Wish Foundation. As a group, the Ward 22 Democratic Committee, Sen. Tolman, Reps Moran and Honan, and Councilor Ciommo decided to get together and solve this problem.

Tomorrow from 5:30pm to 9:30pm there will be a Christmas Party/Toy Drive at 21 Nickels Grille at 21 Nichols Ave, Watertown (not in Allston/Brighton but Rep. Moran is part owner so the price is right). Gift ideas: board games, stuffed animals, dolls, sports or educational toys, hand-held games, remote controlled cars.

    Who makes up the Ward 22 Democratic Committee? Do they ever meet? I am familiar with the ward 21 committee, I remember them endorsing in the city council race and I know they meet... What's going on with the ward 22 committee?... especially considering the VAST MAJORITY of A/B community members live in ward 22.
