WESTPORT, Conn. – The Westport Daily Voice accepts signed and original letters to the editor up to 350 words. To submit your letter, email .

The members of the Westport Police Union and Westport Police Benevolent Association would like to extend our sincere gratitude for the bountiful contributions we received during our 2015 Holiday Toy Drive.

Year after year, we are able to say how tremendously successful our drive is and we are happy to say again, this year was no different. Because of our donors’ charitableness and commitment to this cause, we were able to donate gifts to several hundred children throughout Fairfield County who otherwise would not have received toys for the holidays.

Toys were distributed to the Interfaith Housing Association (Westport), Norwalk Community Health Center (Norwalk), The Carver Center (Norwalk), Newtown Kindness (Newtown), St. Vincent’s Medical Center (Bridgeport), Bridgeport Hospital (Bridgeport) and St. Charles Urban Center (Bridgeport).

The project would not be nearly as successful if it were not for the individuals and local businesses that show their support, concern and generosity toward the underprivileged in our area. Each year, as the members of the Westport Police Department collect the donations, we are deeply touched, by not only the generosity, but also the acts of kindness we witness repeatedly. To see not only adults demonstrate the true spirit of the holidays, but children as well, is truly heartwarming.

Special thanks to ASF Sports & Outdoors and 95.9 The Fox, who support us year after year, and our new partners, Whole Foods Market-Wesptort and Renato’s Jewelers.

With thanks from the bottom of our hearts,

The men and women of the Westport Police Department
