The Auburn Police Department is once again conducting a Toy Drive for their annual Secret Santa program. This year, police and civilian volunteers will be collecting toys, wrapping gifts and delivering them to 45 families.

The Auburn Police Secret Santa are in specific need of toys and gifts for children between the ages of 8 and 16. The Secret Santa volunteers work with the Auburn School Department to identify children and families in need.

Toys are needed for all ages, but especially for children in the older age group. Suggested items for older kids include movie passes, books, sports balls, hand held video games and gift cards.

Unwrapped toys and monetary donations can be dropped off at the Auburn Police Department. Any questions can be addressed by contacting Stacy Fitzgerald at 508-832-7777 or email:Stacy.Fitzgerald@AuburnMassPolice.org.

The Toys will be delivered by Auburn Police officers on December 20, 2013.
