Buffalo Grove Police Participate in 2021 ´Toys for Tots' Campaign

The Buffalo Grove Police Department is once again participating in the ‘Toys for Tots’ campaign, a charitable initiative started by the United States Marine Corps to benefit local children in need during the holiday season.

Toys for Tots officially began in 1991 and has grown significantly, allowing the Marine Corps to donate millions of toys each year. The Police Department has served as a collection site for new and unwrapped toys for several decades.

“Our longtime participation in Toys for Tots is due to the generosity of the Buffalo Grove community,” said Deputy Police Chief Michael Szos. “As part of this community, the police department takes great pride in hosting, as well as contributing, to this charitable cause.”

Donation boxes are located in the lobby of the Police Department, 46 Raupp Boulevard, where area residents can drop off new and unwrapped toys 24 hours per day, seven days a week - now through Monday, December 6. Please consider helping a child in need. Members of the Marine Corps will distribute the donations this holiday season.
