to Brookhaven Town's INTERFACE Holiday Toys for Kids Drive



UPTON, NY - Brookhaven Science Associates (BSA), which operates Brookhaven National Laboratory for the U.S. Department of Energy, has donated $2,500 to Brookhaven Town's INTERFACE Holiday Toys for Kids Drive. INTERFACE is a partnership between the Town of Brookhaven and its corporate neighbors, united in an effort to provide help for Brookhaven's needy residents. For many years, Brookhaven Lab employees also have donated toys to the annual INTERFACE Holiday Toys for Kids Drive, and they have been generous in their donations to the INTERFACE monthly food drive.
