Westport Police Host Holiday Toy Drive

Fundraiser and toy drive begins Dec. 6

Westport, CT | Added on November 20, 2014 At 11:12 PM

The Westport Police will be hosting their annual Holiday Toy Drive, bringing toys for underprivileged children throughout Fairfield County and beyond.

In addition to the regularly sponsored agencies, this year will be their second year partnering with “Newtown Kindness”, an organization whose mission is “to promote kindness as a guiding principle of humanity”. In a release, the Westport Police Department said it is "honored to work toward such a mission with Newtown Kindness".

The department asks for your continued support and generosity to help make this year’s drive as successful as in the past. By doing so, you will bring joy to so many children who often have none.

New, unopened, and unwrapped toys, as well as cash donations, will be accepted by Westport Police Officers in the parking lot of The Athletic Shoe Factory, located at 1560 Post Road East, Westport on the following Saturdays and Sundays: Dec. 6, 7, 13, and 14 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. 

In the case of inclement weather, please call the Westport Police Department at 203-341-6000 or check with the local news services. Should the weather not allow a trip to the Athletic Shoe Factory on any one of those days, the donations can be brought to the department as soon as conditions allow.

Collection boxes will be set up at the Westport Police Department, 50 Jesup Road and Westport Town Hall, 110 Myrtle Avenue beginning Friday, Dec. 5 through Sunday, Dec. 14. The deadline for all donations is Sunday, Dec. 14th at 5 p.m.

Any questions can be directed to Sgt. Jill Ruggiero at or at 203-341-6000.
