SOMERSET COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE IS COLLECTING ‘TOYS FOR TOTS’
SOMERVILLE, NJ – Somerset County Sheriff Darrin J. Russo and the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation are sponsoring a 2020 Toys for Tots collection drive that will enable children who are in need to receive Christmas gifts.
A collection box will be placed inside the vestibule at the entrance to the county Administration Building, located at 20 Grove St., Somerville, NJ 08876. Toys can be dropped off through Friday, Dec. 11, between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
“So many families are feeling the emotional and economic impact of COVID and can use a little extra hope for Christmas,” said Sheriff Russo. “Residents can make a difference and help fill children’s hearts with joy by donating.
“Thank you to all of those residents and employees in Somerset County who have been so generous by supporting this cause in the past, and who will donate this year,” he said.
Toy donations should be new or unwrapped, safe (non-choking hazard toys for infants and toddlers) and age-appropriate for both boys and girls. The ages of gift recipients range from newborn up to 14-years of age. Toy gun replicas and gift cards will NOT be accepted.
