New, unwrapped toys being collected for local families in need this holiday season

The Delaware County Park Police are proud to announce their 4th annual “Blue Christmas” Toy Drive. New, unwrapped toys will be collected from Dec. 6-23 at various locations across the county for children in need this holiday season.

Residents and County employees are asked to donate new, unwrapped gifts for children ages 2-16. The gifts will be donated to Delaware County’s Children and Youth Services, Healing Hats and Toys, The Domestic Abuse Project and to local families in need.

“All children deserve to feel joy on Christmas morning,” said Delaware County Park Police Chief Scott Mahoney. “For children in foster care, those battling cancer and other illnesses and those experiencing hard situations, Christmas can be a difficult time. We hope the small gesture of giving them a gift to open on Christmas morning brings them some happiness.”

Donations are being accepted Dec. 6-23 at the following locations:

Government Center (201 W. Front St., Media, PA / ground floor lobby)

The Fronefield Building (201 W. Front St., Media, PA)

Delaware County’s Office of Human Services (20 S. 69th St., Upper Darby, PA. / 3rd floor)

Chester District Court (160 E. 7th St., Chester, PA)

Emergency Services Training Center/Building #4 (1600 Calcon Hook Rd., Sharon Hill, PA)

Park Police will also be collecting donations at the kick-off of Delaware County’s Festival of Lights on Dec. 6 at 7:00 p.m at Rose Tree Park.
