Anniston Police collecting toys for Christmas
One east Alabama Police Department is working to make Christmas special for some local children.
The Anniston Police Department is hosting a toy drive. You can drop off new and unwrapped toys inside the lobby at the police station.
The department's Street Crimes team organized the drive after noticing some children playing outside without a football.
"So those guys decided, they took it upon themselves to put this together, get a big box down here, get it out word of mouth about getting some toys in here," Captain Nick Bowles with the Anniston Police Department said, "helping kids that may not be able to get a basketball, or football, or a doll or whatever it is for Christmas."
You can drop off toys at the Anniston Police station until December 14th.
