Toys for Tots 2013
The Park Ridge Police Department is, again, coordinating citywide efforts to assist the United States Marine Corps Reserve in their annual Toys for Tots campaign. Toys for Tots distributes toys, games and educational items to thousands of underprivileged children and teens throughout the Chicago metropolitan area and throughout the nation every holiday season.
"We are excited to participate again this year. I think that our efforts this holiday season are even more important given the increased number of families affected by the troubled economy" said Chief Frank Kaminski. "We ask everyone who is able, to dig deeper this year and help extend this program out to more and more families" he added.
Anyone interested in donating toys, games and books, should ensure that they are not wrapped in holiday paper, are new and that they are in original, unopened condition. Donations will be accepted at the following locations between November 23 and December 11, 2013:
Park Ridge City Hall 505 Butler Place
