The coronavirus pandemic may have canceled holiday festivities but other traditions, like gift giving must go on.
The James City County Police Department wants residents to help “stuff the cruiser” with toys and clothing items for kids in need.
The department said “2020 has been difficult for many,” according to the Facebook event page. “Help us put a smile on a child’s face this holiday season.”
Some items people can donate are sports balls, toy cars, dolls, board games, skateboards, roller skates, outdoor chalk, earbuds, socks, sweatshirts, hats and gloves.
The county’s Department of Social Services will give the donated gifts and clothes to families in the area and kids up to 18 years old.
The Stuff the Cruiser Holiday Toy Drive is at Target, 4630 Monticello Ave., on Dec. 5 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Can’t make the event? You can also drop off donations at the Law Enforcement Center, 4600 Opportunity Way, before Dec. 5.
Stop by and see us on Saturday at Target at 4630 Monticello Avenue, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. for our Stuff the Cruiser Holiday Toy…
