Oakland Police Department Annual Christmas Toy Drive

With Christmas just around the corner, it is time once again for us begin our Annual Christmas Toy Drive.    This year the Toy Drive will begin on Monday, November 26th and will run through December 17th.   Collection boxes will be set up in the lobbies of the police station, town hall and the Oakland Avenue Charter School.  DG Doughnuts at the corner of Tubb and SR50 and the 7-Eleven on Remington Road have also volunteered to collect toys at their locations.     Gift cards to toy stores or department stores are welcome too.  We ask that those who wish to make a financial donation to do so no later than December 14th, so we have time to purchase the toys for distribution.  Anyone wishing to make such a donation should make the check out to the Town of Oakland and on memo line put, PD 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.  Over the past seven years we have been able to purchase hundreds of more toys because of financial donations.         Each year many of you have generously donated to this cause and it is appreciated more than you know.  Giving children a chance to enjoy the holidays is something that we hope to do each and every year.
