  Update on the 2009 DRPS Food & Toy Drive

Dec 14, 2009 07:55 ET

The 2009 Durham Regional Police Service Food and Toy Drive has only two weeks left to meet the needs of families in the Durham Region.

Today, we received donations from Mackie Moving Systems, Darlington Nuclear Power Plant and the Durham Regional Police Association but, unfortunately, we are still in dire need of gifts for children over the age of 12, both boys and girls. Some great ideas for this age range are: gift cards (from local malls, movies, book stores), sporting goods, hair accessories, make up, bath gels, cameras (with pre-paid developing), MP3 players, etc.

If you would like to help out, please bring unwrapped toys or food to any police station in Durham Region, any fire hall in Oshawa, Whitby, Ajax or Clarington and to participating stores prior to Dec. 23rd.

Priority is always given to needy families in Durham Region. If your family is in need of food or toys this holiday season, please contact a local agency or church and they will see we get your information.

To contact a member of our Food and Toy Drive, please call (905) 721-2999.

Thanks again to those of you who have already generously donated to the Drive.
