Massachusetts State Police Gear Up for the 31st Toys for Tots Campaign


‘Tis the Season

Today November 10th, the nation marks the 240th birthday of the United States Marine Corps, and the Massachusetts State Police thank the men and women of the USMC and all Veterans for their service in the name of freedom. Likewise, the State Police are proud to again support the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program to help local families in need.

Members of the Massachusetts State Police and United States Marine Corps Reserve urge the public to support Toys for Tots through donations of toys or money. The donations will assist charitable organizations that provide children’s gifts for Massachusetts families in need.

This year is the 68th anniversary of the Marine Corps’ leadership of the Toys for Tots Program. The Massachusetts State Police have partnered with the Marines on the program for the last 31 years.

“It has been an honor for the Department of State Police to participate and partner with the United States Marine Corps for such an important endeavor,” said Colonel Richard D McKeon.

Donors are asked to give new, unwrapped, non-violent toys, designed for either boys or girls, ages newborn to 14. As in years past, toys can be dropped off at any State Police Barracks through Wednesday, Dec. 16th.

The Massachusetts State Police will also be holding their sixth annual “Fill the Cruiser” event, where troopers will be collecting donations for Toys for Tots at ten Toys ‘R’ Us locations across the state, on Saturday, December 5th, 2015. The Toys “R” Us locations are Auburn, Dedham, Framingham, Kingston, Northborough, North Dartmouth, Peabody, Springfield, Swansea, and Woburn. More information will be forthcoming on those events in the next few days.

The State Police will be announcing the kickoff press conferences in the near future.
