STATE POLICE “STUFF A CRUISER HOLIDAY TOY DRIVE”

READY FOR THIS SATURDAY, DECEMBER 6, AT VARIOUS LOCATIONS

   Everyday, Connecticut State Troopers encounter children in need. Many of these children would not wake up with a smile on Christmas morning if it were not for the generosity of the people of Connecticut. Due to this need, each State Police Troop is dedicated to the success of “STUFF A CRUISER HOLDAY TOY DRIVE” which is a statewide effort between Connecticut State Police and the citizens of the State of Connecticut to “team up” and assist families in need during this holiday season.

   On Saturday, December 6, 2014 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. off-duty Connecticut State Troopers will personally be on hand to collect toys at all sites (listed below) across the state. The new (unwrapped) toys will be distributed to local Social Services agencies in the same area where the toys are collected.    

   Connecticut State Troopers will be collecting toys at the following locations:
