November 23, 2010 - It’s never too early to think about Christmas – and about all the children who might not get any toys.
The Vernon Hills Police Department will once again be a drop-off location for the US Marine ors Reserve Toys for Tots program. Last year, we had an overwhelming response and we’d like to repeat that again this year – or beat it. Of course, last year we also had help from
Center , who donated hundreds of toys and games! We’ve already started this year, thanks to Vernon Hills Daisy Scout troop 41574, who dropped off some toys when they came for a station tour!
Kids of all ages are encouraged to help other kids who don’t have as much. Some kids have donated their birthday and holiday money to Toys for Tots, while others have asked for toys that can be given to Toys for Tots instead of keeping them for themselves.
We are encouraging everyone to bring a new/unwrapped toy to any of our drop-off locations:
Vernon Hills Police Department – 754 Lakeview Parkway (24 hours a day)
Vernon Hills Village Hall – 290 Evergreen Drive (Monday-Friday, 8:30 am - 5 pm)
Vernon Hills Public Works – 490 Greenleaf Drive (Monday-Friday, 7 am – 3:30 pm)
Toys will be collected until December 19th. Anyone with questions should call (847) 247-4889.
