Campton Hills joins Toys for Tots campaign

By on December 14, 2010

Campton Hills—The Campton Hills Police Department announced that it is partnering with the U.S. Marine Corps in the Toys for Tots program.

Toys for Tots’ mission is to collect new, unwrapped toys and distribute them as Christmas gifts to needy children. According to the Toys for Tots website, “the primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a shiny new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to needy youngsters that will motivate them to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens and community leaders.”

The Campton Hills Police Department will be a drop-off point for these toys. Of particular need are toys for children 8 to 14 years of age. Anyone wishing to donate to this program may drop off unwrapped new toys at Campton Hills Police Department/Village Hall, 40W115 Campton Crossings Drive, Unit B, Campton Hills; or call (630) 584-0330.

Toys should be dropped off by Friday, Dec. 17.

Anyone who has a toy for a needy child and is unable to come to the Campton Hills Police Department may contact the nonemergency number and make arrangements for someone to pick up the toy.

More information can be found at or by contacting Chief Dan Hoffman at (630) 584-4242.
