Police and Toy Chest host Stuff A Cruiser toy drive

The Wilton Police Department on Saturday Dec. 17 will sponsor a Stuff-A-Cruiser event to benefit the Toys for Tots program.

The department is co-sponsoring the drive with the Toy Chest store.

The event will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Toy Chester, 21 River Road.

The Toys for Tots program makes it possible for children from low income families to receive new toys during the holiday season. All toys collected will be distributed to children within the community.

The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate children that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.

The Toy Chest is offering a 10% discount to any shoppers who come out to support the cause on the day of the event.
