East Palo Alto police desperate for toy donations

Officers make a public call for donations to fulfill families' and children's needs

On the morning of Dec. 24 East Palo Alto police officers and staff plan to distribute toys to needy families and their children in the community.

But just five days before Christmas, the department is making a public appeal for toys. The police toy drive is in desperate need of donations, officials said.

To help, the public can contribute new or unwrapped toys or make a monetary donation. Donations can be dropped off at the East Palo Alto Police Department, 141 Demeter St., until Dec. 23. Donation checks can be made to "The East Palo Alto PD POA."

More information is available by contacting Vickie Porter at 650-853-3163.
