Sheriff's Department Toy Drive a Smashing Success Thanks to a 90-Year-Old Putnam Woman

Putnam County Sheriff Robert L. Langley Jr. would like to thank 90 yr. old Marie Brady for helping to make this year’s “Toys For Tots” drive so successful.

Marie Brady has been a resident of Tilly Foster, Southeast, for her entire life. She is an energetic nonagenarian who donates her time and money to helping children. Each year Marie goes around town and, through word of mouth, gets many people to donate toys for the “Toys For Tots” program. She purchases many toys herself and this year, with the toys she bought and the toys donated by others and dropped off at her home, she collected over 200 toys and 21 bicycles.

Marie told Deputy AJ Pizzuto that she hopes to live long enough to double this year’s total for next year and wants people to know that anyone can do it. Marie was helped this year by close friend Wendy Koehler and Sheriff’s Cadet Vincent Ricci.

The Putnam County Sheriff’s Department picked up the toys at her residence and dropped them off at the local drop-off site.

Toy Drive 1983

In this week’s #tbt photo, we continue with the sprit of giving and the long tradition of the Sheriff’s Annual Christmas Toy Drive for families in need. You may recall around Thanksgiving, we featured a similar photo of Corporal Charles J. Moore. Well, yes, it’s the same van, but a different cast of characters. That van, Sheriff’s Unit “Seven-Zero-Three” was around for a very long time. If we remember correctly, it was purchased second hand from the New York Telephone Company, painted blue and white and put into service. Later it was painted red and white as you can see here. Left to right- Corporal Terry Lee Ridpath, Corporal Douglas MacCrae, a Sheriff’s Cadet, (If anyone knows his name, please let us know) and Sheriff Raynor Weizenecker, ca. 1983. Happy merry everyone! #pcso #putnamcountyny #putnamhistory #community #lovethatvan
