Toys for tots program held by Fair Lawn police

December 13, 2012 by  

Dispatchers, members of the rescue squad, and other members of the Fair Lawn Police Department in New Jersey recently announced that, along with the Saddle Brook Police Department, they will be collecting toys for all ages of children as part of the Toys for Tots program.

Working with the United States Marine Corps Reserve to collect new toys from the months of October through December, the program enables these toys to be distributed to children who are less fortunate at Christmas time. The Police Department is no doubt using poster printing to post notices of this effort so that as many children as possible will be able to enjoy the holiday season.

According to Michael O’Brien, president of the Fair Lawn Policeman’s Benevolent Association, the police in the community, along with those who are involved in emergency response efforts, are very committed to Toys for Tots and hope that the community will show their support for the program by donating toys. The goal is for as many children as possible to have a bright holiday during these tough economic times.

There are seven locations in Fair Lawn at which new and unwrapped toys can be dropped off until December 17. The Fair Lawn Rescue Squad Building will also be open from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm this evening, December 13, for the drop-off of toys.

O’Brien added that everybody involved is appreciative of the businesses in the community that have volunteered to become drop-off sites.
