Corona elected officials and community groups celebrated Three Kings Day last week by distributing toys to neighborhood children.

Councilman Francisco Moya partnered with the New York City & Vicinity District Council of Carpenters, the Carpenter Contractor Alliance of Metropolitan New York, and Sheet Metal Workers Local 28 to give out 300 toys on January 6. The toys were supplied by Park Side Restaurant, a local establishment.

“The last few months have been difficult for my community and for our country,” Moya said in a statement. “I’m grateful for my brothers and sisters in labor for their unending support to the families in my district.

“Thanks to their dedication,” he added, “we were able to bring some respite on what should have been a joyous day in America with the magic of Three Kings Day to 300 children.”

In another part of the neighborhood, district leaders Lily Melo, Sonya Harvey and Hiram Monserrate hosted a Three Kings Day celebration with gifts and candies for nearly 500 children.

“For the past 20 years, I have seen how this event has attracted thousands of children,” Melo said in a statement. “Their smiles and happiness are ours.”

The National Latino Officers Association, led by executive chairman Anthony Miranda, helped provide gifts for the event.

“Our organization always stands with the community,” he said, “and wanted to ensure our children would be able to celebrate and receive a gift on this important date.”
