Give the Cops Some Toys For Tots

Morris Plains and Morris Township Police have collection boxes out now.

Morris Plains Police Chief Scott Thompson and Morris Township Officer Heather Glogolich may work in two different departments, but both are looking for donations for the Toys for Tots program from area residents.

“This is a really great program,” Thompson said at the last Morris Plains Borough Council meeting. “And the box will be set up in our lobby and I hope people will donate.”

The Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots collection box in the lobby of the Morris Plains Police Department/Borough Hall located at 531 Speedwell Avenue until Friday. The lobby is open to the public Monday thru Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. 

The Morris Township PBA Local 133 is organizing and conducting a toy donation campaign through the US Marine Corps Toys for Tots Program. We will be accepting new, unwrapped toys in the lobby of the Morris Township Police Department Headquarters located at 49 Woodland Avenue, Morristown, NJ 07960.

"The objectives of the Marine Corps Toys for Tots Program are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of the holiday season and to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children," Glogolich said. "This is a top priority of the Morris Township PBA as well. Every year we ask for donations through our fund drive from our residents and no matter how economically strained the families within our community are, they always seem to be able to send a monetary donation to support our union. This is one of the main reasons we work so hard throughout the year to continually give back to our residents. They are the foundation for why we do what we do."

Glogolich said no child should be left without the magic of the holiday season and the hope is that not one of the children within Morris Township will have to go without a present this year.

"We ask that the community thinks of those families who are less fortunate. While a large part of Morris Township is affluent we have many families that are unable to spend the extra money on gifts for their children because they have to put food on the table and pay their bills," Glogolich said. "Also when purchasing gifts please remember that we need presents for children of all ages and for both girls and boys."

The Morris Township PBA drive goes through Dec 20.
