WESTPORT, Conn. -- The Westport Police Department Local Union 2080 and the Police Benevolent Association are hosting their annual Holiday Toy Drive, which provides toys for underprivileged children throughout Fairfield County and beyond.
The program has been extremely successful in the past, allowing for thousands of toys to be distributed to children who otherwise would have none.
Westport police officers will accept new, unopened and unwrapped toys, as well as cash donations, in the parking lot of ASF Sports & Outdoors, located at 1560 Post Road East, on the following Saturdays and Sundays: Dec. 9, 10, 16 and 17 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
In the case of inclement weather, call the Westport Police Department at (203) 341-6000 or check local news. Should the weather not allow for a trip to ASF, donations can be brought to the Westport Police Department as soon as conditions allow.
