Nov. 14, 2011
GREENVILLE, PA – The Thiel Campus Police, Greenville-West Salem Township Police and Hempfield Township Police need your help to continue the success of the eighth annual U.S. Marines Corps Reserve Toys for Tots drive in Greenville.
The mission of the Toys for Tots Program is to collect toys during the fall of each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted. The Greenville drive will collect new, unwrapped toys through Dec. 16, which then will be distributed to children in the Greenville-Mercer County area.
“We are asking the local community to help bring a smile to the faces of the community’s needy children on Christmas morning,” says Thiel Police Chief Don Aubrecht. “The local law enforcement agencies are proud to be part of the program, and we are proud of the way our community responds each year to the needs of their neighbors and friends.”
Cash donations are also accepted and will be used to purchase new toys.
Anyone wishing to drop off new toys or a donation can do so to the Thiel College Campus Police, located on the second floor of the Howard Miller Student Center on Thiel’s campus, between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. or at the Greenville-West Salem or Hempfield Township Police Departments.For more information, please call Chief Aubrecht at 724-589-2222.
