This Saturday, Nov. 28, Perth County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers are once again teaming up with the Salvation Army in St. Marys and Listowel, to help make Christmas extra special for needy children this year.
OPP officers will have their cruisers set up in front of the St. Marys Canadian Tire as well as the Listowel Walmart on Saturday, Nov. 28 from 9:30 a.m. until 2 p.m.
They will be collecting new unwrapped toys or sports equipment for kids from less fortunate families. The local Salvation Army in Listowel and St. Marys will ensure that these toys are distributed to the needy families within their communities.
In previous years these toy drives have shown the generosity of our communities. These drives have been very successful, and the local Salvation Army chapters are relying on this event to place something special under the tree for children on Christmas morning.
We all know that the need is great, “Let’s Stuff Those Cruisers”.
