LYNDHURST, N.J. -- The Sebastian Saraiva Sixth Annual Toy Drive will be collecting new, unwrapped toys for children and families who will be spending this holiday season in a hospital.

The toy drive is scheduled for 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. on Dec. 10 at the Lyndhurst Parks Department, 250 Cleveland Ave., according to organizers.

The toy drive is named after a young child, Sebastian Joseph Saraiva, who died on Dec. 30, 2006 -- two weeks before his third birthday, according to organizers.

The boy's family had spent much of the holiday season that year in a hospital and received help from many generous people, organizers said, adding that the toy drive is the family's way of giving back.

All toys collected during the drive will be donated to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and Families in Need.
