The Westport Police Department Local Union #2080 and Police Benevolent Association will be hosting their annual Holiday Toy Drive, which provides toys for underprivileged children throughout Fairfield County and beyond. The program has been extremely successful in the past, allowing for thousands of toys to be distributed to children who otherwise would have none.
Westport Police Officers will accept new, unopened, and unwrapped toys, as well as cash donations, in the parking lot of ASF Sports & Outdoors, located at 1560 Post Road East, Westport, on the following Saturdays and Sundays: December 7th, 8th, 14th, and 15th between the hours of 9:00AM and 5:00PM.
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 ASF on any one of those days, the donations can be brought to the Westport Police Department as soon as conditions allow.
Collection boxes will be set up November 22nd through December 15th at the following locations:
- Westport Police Department, 50 Jesup Road, 24 hours a day
- Westport Town Hall, 110 Myrtle Avenue, during business hours of Mon-Fri 8:30AM-4:30PM
- ASF Sports & Outdoors, 1560 Post Road East, during store hours of Sundays 11AM-4:30PM, Mon/Tues/Weds/Fri 10AM-6PM, Thurs 10AM-7PM, Saturdays 10AM-5:30PM
