Westport Police Set Holiday Toy Drive
The Westport Police Department Local Union 2080 and Police Benevolent Association next month will again sponsor their annual Holiday Toy Drive.
The drive, which provides toys for underprivileged children throughout Fairfield County, over past years has distributed thousands of toys to children who otherwise would have none.
Donors are asked to drop off new, unopened, and unwrapped toys in the parking lot of the Athletic Shoe Factory, 1560 Post Road East, on the weekends of Dec. 8, 9, 15, and 16 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Donations may also be dropped off at the Westport Police Department, 50 Jesup Road, at any time.
Donations will be collected at the department until Sunday, Dec. 16, at 3 p.m.
This year, due to recent, severe destruction caused by Storm Sandy, organizers said they anticipate an even greater need among the underprivileged, as well as families who are recovering from catastrophic loss of their homes and/or personal property.
“We ask for your continued support and generosity to help make this year’s drive as successful as in the past,” an announcement said. “By doing so, you will bring joy to so many children.”
