Laurel Police Department is in the process of organizing a Toy Drive for the Christmas Holiday. Its goal is… “No Kid Without A Toy For Christmas.”
LPD staff members are asking that the citizens and business community of the Town of Laurel join them to make this goal a reality. They will be working with school nurses to see that the toys go to families that are truly in need.
LPD is asking for donations of new, unwrapped toys. Donations may be dropped off at the Laurel Police Department Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., or contact Sergeant Jamie Wilson at 875-2244. The Toy Drive will run until December 23.
