The Westport Police Department Local Union No. 2080 and Police Benevolent Association will be hosting their annual Holiday Toy Drive this holiday season.
The drive provides toys for underprivileged children throughout Fairfield County and beyond, an announcement said.
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, on Saturdays and Sundays Dec. 5, 6, 12, and 13 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Officers volunteering on site will be wearing personal protective equipment and can accommodate the contactless drop off of donations.
Due to building access restrictions implemented in response to the current pandemic, donations cannot be accepted at Westport Police Headquarters or at Westport Town Hall as they have been in the past. Despite this change, collection boxes will be set up from the present date until December 14, 2020 at the following Westport stores:
