Buffalo Grove Police Department to Collect for ´Toys for Tots' Program

Toys for Tots Picture (19)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 objective of the program, according to the United States Marine Corps Reserves website, is to unite members of local communities in a common cause, and to play an active role in the positive development of one of the nation’s most valuable resources – our children. The police department has supported these efforts for decades.

“Being able to participate in ‘Toys for Tots’ for so many years is due to the Buffalo Grove community’s generosity,” said Deputy Chief Michael Szos. “As part of the community, the police department takes great pride in hosting, as well as contributing, to this charitable cause.”

There are donation boxes in the lobby of the Buffalo Grove Police Department, located at 46 Raupp Boulevard in Buffalo Grove, where area residents can donate new and unwrapped toys during the holiday season. The program runs now through December 13, 2019 when the Marines will pick up the donated gifts and distribute them to children in need.

Please consider a toy donation today. For more information, contact the Buffalo Grove Police Department at 847-459-2560 or visit toysfortots.org.
