Charlottesville Police Department Announce Annual Toy Drive

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA -The Charlottesville Police Department is excited to announce that we are in the holiday spirit and collecting toys for our annual toy drive. We are seeking your assistance in extending the holiday spirit to the children in our community.

Please consider donating a new unwrapped toy or making a monetary donation that will benefit a child in one of our city’s neighborhoods on December 20th. A decorated donation box will be placed in the lobby near the Services Division window at CPD starting November 30th until December 18th at 5pm where toys can be dropped off. If you wish to make a monetary donation, please make checks payable to The Charlottesville Police Foundation. In addition to collecting toys ourselves, we are proud to partner with Hunter Wyant (State Farm Insurance) who is helping collect toys at his office located at 253 Ridge McIntire Rd.

If you have any questions about these events, feel free to contact Officer Eric Thomas at 434-970-3280 or by email at
