This week’s MTA Hero is Sean DeLoach.
He is an 18-year MTA employee and Metro North Railroad station district manager. This holiday season, DeLoach was thinking of ways to give back to his community of Norwalk, Connecticut.
A few weeks before Christmas, he started collecting toys to distribute to children in shelters.
In two weeks, he was able to collect more than 50 toys.
As a child, DeLoach spent some time in his local shelter in the Bronx, and he remembers what it was like.
He thought that giving out toys to families at the shelter would not only help the families, but would also be a way to honor his mom and all that she had done for him and his sisters.
He plans to collect even more toys next year.
