WOODSTOCK — Chief Robbie Blish is pleased to share that the Woodstock Police Department is still accepting toy donations for children in need following a successful “stuff-a-cruiser” event over the weekend.
Members of the Woodstock community who attended the Wassail parade on Saturday, Dec. 10, collectively donated 50 toys to the department’s effort, which will in turn be donated to the Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots program.
Residents who were unable to attend the parade can still donate by dropping a new, unwrapped toy in the drop box at the Emergency Services Building, 454 Woodstock Road. Donations can be left 24/7 until Dec. 22.
“Our community always steps up to support this meaningful effort to help children in need have a memorable holiday gift,” Chief Blish said, “and I want to thank those who’ve donated so far and encourage anyone who may be able to donate to do so ahead of the holiday.”
