The Westport Police Department Union, Local 2080, and Police Benevolent Association will again sponsor their annual Holiday Toy Drive, which provides toys for underprivileged children throughout Fairfield County.
Through the years, the program has distributed hundreds of toys and holiday cheer to children who otherwise would not receive such gifts.
The police department and Benevolent Association ask for new, unopened, and unwrapped toys. Westport police officers will be collecting toys, as well as cash donations, in the parking lot of the Athletic Shoe Factory at 1560 Post Road East, on Dec. 11, 12, 18, and 19 from 9 to 5 p.m.
Donations can be delivered to the Westport Police Department at 50 Jesup Road. Donations will be collected at the department until 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 19.
