PTC police start 'Light Up The Night' toy drives

The Peachtree City Police Department is holding its 2nd Annual Light Up the Night toy drive beginning on Nov. 26, 2010 in the parking lot of the Peachtree City Walmart, according to Chief H.C. “Skip” Clark.

Future dates include: Walmart on Nov. 27 and Dec. 3, 2010; Target on Dec. 2, 9, and 10, 2010; and Braelinn Kroger on Dec. 8 and 15, 2010. All times are from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m.

“Volunteers from the department will be located in the parking lots of these locations with police vehicles, where we will be collecting unwrapped, new toys and cash donations for families in need,” Clark said.

Look for the Light Up the Night banner and police vehicles when making a donation.

Additional donation locations will be available throughout the weeks prior to Christmas, and these locations will be announced through media releases and our I-Net alert system.

Citizens may also make any donations at the Peachtree City Police Department headquarters located at 350 South Highway 74, Peachtree City, Ga 30269.

“We are very pleased to announce that several businesses in the city are partnering with this toy drive. Any additional businesses who would like to partner with the department may contact Capt. Stan Pye or Capt. Rosanna Dove at 770-487-8866, Chief Clark said.
