Burgaw Police Collect Toys for the Holidays


-- Along with keeping the town safe this holiday season, the Burgaw Police Department is trying to make sure plenty of kids are smiling bright.

Spiderman action figures, board games, and other holiday gifts are already lining the hallways of the police station. The donations are pouring in as part of the department's second annual Cops for Kids toy drive.

Businesses are also donating money to help buy toys, and volunteers will be on hand to wrap the gifts before Christmas.

Officials with the police department say they can't wait to drop off the gifts.

"We hope to get something they want, but just seeing their faces light up when we go to deliver the presents to them, knowing they're getting something good from Santa Claus," says Capt. Lisa Fields.

If you're interested in donating a toy or want more information, call the Burgaw Police Department at (910) 259-4924.
