Thanks for Toy Drive

To the Editor:

The members of the Westport Police Union would like to express their sincere gratitude to all who participated in this year’s Holiday Fund for Children project. 

For the past several years, WICC AM Radio and AMR Ambulance Service have sponsored local police departments in annual toy drives throughout Fairfield County in an effort to collect holiday gifts for the less fortunate children in hospital pediatric centers and around our communities.

Each year, Westport Police Officers collect donations at Police Headquarters, Town Hall and the Toys-R-Us Store located at 1850 Post Road East, Westport.  The toy drive this year was one of the most successful we have had to date. 

Our success could not be accomplished without all of the hundreds of generous people who donated to the fund.  The local residents, town employees, businesses, corporations, Westport Volunteer EMS and those who just came to shop and ended up donating, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. 

To the management and staff at Toys-R-Us (without them, we could not do it!), our deepest gratitude. They not only allowed us a place to collect donations, but they go above and beyond in their efforts to help us succeed each and every year.

Because of all of you, we were able to supply hundreds of children with gifts for the holidays which they otherwise would not have had.  You have all helped to touch the life of a child this year – they are grateful and so are we, the Westport Police Benevolent Association and the Westport Union membership.

Thank you.
