2016 Toys For Tots

  • Starts Dec 2
    Golden Valley Police Department, 7800 Golden Valley Road (open 24 hours a day)

For years the Golden Valley Police Department (GVPD) has spearheaded a Toys For Tots donation effort in collaboration with regional law enforcement agencies.

Toys and gifts are collected at the GVPD throughout December. On the last collection day, police from as many as 20 departments load their cruisers with donated gifts and meet at the GVPD. Then, lights blazing and sirens blaring, they parade to the KARE 11 Toys For Tots drop-off site in time for the 5 pm news program.
