Jean Shafiroff Donates to Toy Gun Exchange Program

Southampton philanthropist Jean Shafiroff has donated a variety of toys to a toy gun exchange program she founded.

Shafiroff, alongside Nassau County Legislator Dennis Dunne, Town of Hempstead Mayor Wayne Hall and Hempstead Board of Education President Lamont Johnson, introduced the New York Toy Gun Exchange Program at a press conference on Wednesday, December 23, at Kennedy Memorial Park in Hempstead.

The program allows children to exchange their water pistols, replica firearms and other imitation weapons for sporting goods, educational items and safe toys. This is the first program of its kind in the Long Island/New York City metropolitan area.
