GREENFIELD (December 10) – The Greenfield Police Department is continuing to spread cheer this year for the children of Greenfield with its 5th annual toy drive.
The police department set up donation boxes at the Greenfield City Hall, Dollar General in Greenfield, and the Greenfield Police Department. They hope to have the majority of donations in by (today) Wednesday, December 16, but will still take any donations until Christmas to help children in the community.
This year will be slightly different for the toy drive as they will still take all donations to the school, but they will have individuals drop off the donations at homes. They will leave the donated toys on porches of families in need this year to reduce the person-to-person contact.
Greenfield Police Chief Joey Radford said, “I appreciate all the people donating toys through this charity event that we hold every year.”
Last year the department’s toy drive collected 150 toys from the community and churches coming together for children.
When the department dropped toys off at the school, principal Jeff Cupples had this to say, “This school and community have not failed to meet a need when notified. The community has met and exceeded every goal with a faithful heart. The spirit of Christmas is alive in Greenfield – such good people!”
