YONKERS, N.Y. -- Ridge Hill, a shopping destination in Yonkers, is partnering with a local nonprofit to help make the holidays a little brighter for children in need.
Shoppers and visitors to DreamWorks’ interactive attraction “Adventure to Santa” are being asked to participate in a toy drive to benefit ANDRUS, an 87-year-old organization that reaches 4,000 children throughout Westchester.

Through Sunday, Dec. 20, unwrapped toys appropriate for children ages 6 through 16 can be dropped off with Guest Services at the Holiday Tree in the lobby of the WESTMED building at Ridge Hill, 73 Market St.
Here are other places where the toys can be dropped off:
- Guest Services in the center’s Town Square from 2-6 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays through Dec. 20.
- Go! Calendars Games and Toys
- Lord & Taylor children’s department
- TJ Maxx
The donated toys will be handed over to ANDRUS, which will then give them to children throughout the county.
Bryan R. Murphy, president and CEO of ANDRUS, thanking Ridge Hill, called the partnership “important.”
Both organizations are, Murphy said, “invested in the youth of this community and truly care about their personal growth and futures filled with opportunity.”
“While we are in the midst of the most joyous time of the year, there are many children and families that are struggling. Through our toy drive, we have the opportunity to make a small contribution that can go a long way,” said Kathryn Welch, executive vice president of Forest City Ratner Companies, the group that owns and operates Ridge Hill.
