Christmas may be over but, sadly, need never takes a holiday. Fortunately, neither do kind hearts. New Bedford Police and Safe Zones are continuing to collect unwrapped toys for children in need through Dec. 31.
Donation boxes are in place at all police stations, Station 1, 572 Pleasant St.; Station 2, 168 Cove St.; Station 3, 781 Ashley Blvd. and police headquarters, 871 Rockdale Ave.
Stations are open 24/7 for donations.
