For 17 years, the Golden Valley Police Department has led regional law enforcement agencies in a unique approach to the Toys for Tots donation effort.
It starts with a toy collection at the GVPD. On the last collection day, police from as many as 20 departments load their cruisers with donated gifts and meet at the GVPD. Then, lights blazing and sirens blaring, they parade to the KARE 11 Toys for Tots drop-off site. In past years the effort garnered thousands of toys.
If you want to help, bring new, unwrapped toys to the GVPD at 7800 Golden Valley Rd. (open 24 hours a day) between Nov. 26 and Dec. 18 (at 3 p.m.). Don’t forget gifts for older kids and teens.
