Newark’s Annual Toys for Tots Campaign Has Begun

Continuing a tradition more than two decades strong, the City of Newark Police Department, in cooperation with Aetna, Hose, Hook & Ladder Fire Company of Newark and the United States Marine Corps Reserve, will once again deliver hundreds of toys to local children this holiday season. Together, they hope to collect more than 500 toys for deserving youth in the Newark area.

Now through Friday, December 14, residents and visitors are encouraged to drop off new, unwrapped gifts for children up to 12 years of age. A donation barrel is located in the lobby of the Newark Municipal Building at 220 South Main Street.

The donated gifts will be sorted by age groups and wrapped by volunteers and delivered to deserving children in several Newark neighborhoods.

Special Notice
