December 8th, 2023 – Dozens of toys were picked up from Islip Town Hall and delivered to the Salvation Army, for distribution to the organization's Angel Tree recipients.

Town of Islip employees went above and beyond, buying toys, clothes, shoes and games from the wish lists of 60 Salvation Army Angels. Employees placed the unwrapped items in Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter's office, where they were collected by Santa's elves and given to families registered with the Angel Tree program. The Town of Islip has been participating in the Salvation Army Angel Tree program since 2015, when Supervisor Carpenter took office.
