The department’s local union No. 2080 and the Police Benevolent Association announced today the drive will take place on two successive weekends – Dec. 10-11 and Dec. 17-18.

Officers will accept new, unopened, and unwrapped toys, as well as cash donations, in the parking lot of ASF Sports & Outdoors, 1560 Post Road East, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The drive provides toys for underprivileged children throughout Fairfield County and beyond, said Sgt. Jill Ruggiero.

“The program has been extremely successful in the past, allowing for thousands of toys to be distributed to children who otherwise would have none,” she said.

In case of inclement weather, donors are asked to call the Westport Police Department at (203)341-6000 or check with the local news services.
