Long Beach Police Department Kicks Off Annual “Toy Patrol”
2010-12-07 · By Editor
The Long Beach Police Department has begun its annual “Toy Patrol” holiday toy drive and is collecting donations of new, unwrapped toys from businesses and individuals to be distributed to children in need throughout Long Beach. The Toy Patrol delivery caravan will take place on Saturday, December 18th, 2010, and will be a joint effort with the Long Beach Fire Department.
Officers come in contact with families and children every day who are less fortunate due to circumstances beyond their control. The Long Beach Police Department invites you to join us in spreading the joy of the holiday season to those families by donating to this worthy cause. Donations can be dropped off at various locations throughout the city including Police Headquarters as well as each of the substations, the city’s public libraries, and several businesses throughout Long Beach. This year we are especially in need of toys for boys and girls 12 and up. Monetary donations are being accepted as well.
For more information, please contact Lieutenant Liz Griffin of the Long Beach Police Department’s Field Support Division at (562) 570-7210.
