12/2/2017 - Southbury Police Department Annual Toy and Gift Drive

The Southbury Police have teamed up with merchants of the Southbury Plaza to organize a toy drive to benefit children in need.

On Friday, November 24 and on Saturday, December 2, from 9 AM to 2 PM, the police officers will be in front of the T.J. Maxx store collecting new, unwrapped toys and gifts. Their goal is to fill their cruisers with enough toys and gifts so that every local child has presents to open on Christmas morning.

The drive will benefit the Southbury Needy Fund's 2017 Holiday Gift Program for Children.

The following items are needed:

  • Sheets, Blankets, FLEECE throws, Comforters (all sizes)
  • Small purses for teens
  • Scarves for preteen and teen girls
