Adelphi Academy of Brooklyn helped to make the holidays a little brighter for children in need by donating dozens of toys collected by students and faculty as part of the academy’s Annual Holiday Toy Drive.

The toys were donated to pediatric cancer patients undergoing treatment at Maimonides Medical Center. Iphigenia Romanos, the academy’s head of school, recently gathered with leaders of the academy’s Student Advisory Board to sort through the donations and prepare the packages to be brought to the hospital’s cancer facility.

Adelphi Academy of Brooklyn is located at 8515 Ridge Boulevard in Bay Ridge.
