The Buffalo Grove Police Department has begun its annual collection for the Toys for Tots program, in partnership with the United States Marine Corps Reserves.
The primary goal of the program, according to the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves, is to deliver a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens. The gifts that are collected are passed along to area youth through the help of local community and religious groups, and social service agencies.
There are donation boxes in the lobby of the police department, located at 46 Raupp Boulevard, Buffalo Grove, to collect new and unwrapped toys during the holiday season. The program runs until December 18, 2017 when the Marines pick up the donated gifts and distributes them.
The police department has been participating in the Toys for Tots program for decades.
“We are happy to contribute to this program and be able to bring some cheer to children experiencing financial hardships during the holidays,” said Deputy Chief Michael Szos. “The Buffalo Grove community is always willing to go above and beyond; currently we are running out of places to store the donated toys and as always, we appreciate our community’s generosity.”Please consider a toy donation today.
