Local resident gathers toys, clothing donations

Continuing her annual tradition, Alexandra Shuster, of Margate, delivered toys and clothing to Shore Medical Center’s Pediatric Care Center on Nov. 21 helping to brighten the holidays for Shore’s pediatric patients and their loved ones.

Shuster’s donation is the continuation of a community service project she began eight years ago while preparing for her Bat Mitzvah at Beth El Synagogue in Margate. Now 20, Shuster, a junior at Pennsylvania State University who is studying psychology, said she looks forward to doing whatever she can to help others.

Each year, Shuster collects donations from area businesses, which she delivers to the Pediatric Care Center on the day before Thanksgiving.
