With the holidays here, the Naperville Park District Police have kicked off the season of giving with an annual tradition.
The group is once again participating in the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots program, a toy drive to help less fortunate kids by giving them a chance to experience the joy of Christmas.
“We’ve been doing it for six years now, just seems like such a good match for any public agency to do. It’s so easy to do and at the same time it accomplishes so much, we’re just overjoyed to be able to be involved in the effort,” said Chief of Police for Naperville Park District, Carl Schnibben.
Residents are invited to get into the spirit by dropping off unwrapped toys to one of seven locations: The Park District Administration Building, Park District Planning Office, Alfred Rubin Riverwalk Community Center, Barn Recreation Center, 95th Street Center, Knoch Knolls Nature Center or the Santa House.
Toys for Tots distributes the presents during the holidays in hopes to make a child’s season brighter.
“Every year I’m amazed at how generous this community is and I know this year will be the same,” said Schnibben.
Toys will be collected until Friday, December 12.. You can get more information at www.dupage-il.toysfortots.org.
