Chelmsford Police to Host Fill-A-Cruiser Event to Benefit Toys For Tots
CHELMSFORD — Chief James M. Spinney is pleased to announce that the Chelmsford Police Department will once again host a Fill-A-Cruiser event to benefit Toys for Tots.
Sunday, Dec. 10, starting at 8 a.m.
Walmart, 66 Parkhurst Road
The Chelmsford Police Department invites the community to fill one of its cruisers with gifts to benefit Toys for Tots.
Chelmsford Police collected 1,500 toys last year — 500 more than their goal — and Sgt. Stephen Fredericks will camp out at Walmart until they’ve reached this year’s goal of 2,000 toys. Residents are asked to contribute new, unwrapped toys for children ages infant to 16.
“I’m grateful for Sgt. Fredericks’ continued commitment to this effort, which has resulted in thousands of toys for children over the years,” Chief Spinney said. “I have no doubt that the community will once again enthusiastically support this great cause.”
The event will also feature a bake sale, with proceeds being used to purchase toys for the drive.
Toys for Tots was founded by the U.S. Marine Corps in 1947 to donate toys to kids in need during the holiday season.
