Police Collecting Toys for Children This Holiday Season

Local Policeman's Benevolent Association looking to receive more than 1,500 toys to give to the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve's Toys for Tots program.

The local police union is running a fundraiser for Toys for Tots this holiday season.

The Wayne Policemen’s Benevolent Association Local 136 will collect toys for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots program.

Toys should be new and unwrapped. Toys can be for children of any age but toys for 3- to 8-year-olds are especially needed.

Toys can be donated until Dec. 19.

Residents can drop off new and unwrapped toys at a number of locations throughout Wayne:

  • Police headquarters lobby
  • A&P
  • ShopRite
  • Stop & Shop

It is the third consecutive year the drive is being held. Last year, the union collected approximately 1,500 toys.  The union would like to surpass that number this year.
