[ARCHIVED] Oakland PD Annual Christmas Toy Drive


Once again this year the Oakland Police Department will be conducting its Annual Christmas Toy Drive.  This year the Toy Drive will begin on Monday, November 28th.   Collection boxes will be set up in the lobbies of the police station and of town hall.  We will be collecting toys until December 20th and ask anyone wishing to donate to drop off new unwrapped toys at either of those two locations.  Gift cards to toy stores or department stores are welcome too.  Over the past four years we have been able to purchase hundreds of more toys for distribution because of financial donations.   Anyone wishing to make such a donation should make the check out to the Town of Oakland and on the comment line put, Toy Drive.  Donations can be dropped off in the lobby of the police station or can be mailed to the Oakland Police Department, P.O. Box 521, Oakland, FL  34760.  We ask that those who wish to make a financial donation to do so no later than December 15th so we have time to purchase the toys for distribution.   We are hopeful that this year’s campaign will allow us to bring a little holiday cheer to children who might otherwise not have a toy to open on Christmas day
