The Niagara Regional Police are once again appealing to the public for assistance.

This time it's not to assist with solving a crime; it's to help collect food and toys for children and families in need this coming holiday season.

The annual Niagara Regional Police Service Holiday Food and Toy Drive is underway and once again public support is expected to be the backbone of its success. Members of the public are asked to drop off any non-perishable food item or new, unwrapped toy to any office of the Niagara Regional Police Service throughout the region.

Members of the public who wish to donate may do so at the front desk of any police station during business hours.

All donations remain and are distributed within the communities they are donated. Community groups have all indicated the need for non-perishable food items, particularly proteins, is even greater this year.

Also, when considering donating a toy, please be mindful of the age group 9 to 13, as these individuals are often overlooked. Gift ideas for this age group could include movie passes, gift cards, sporting goods or sporting apparel. We respectfully ask for no cash donations.

This year, more than ever, our local food banks are in need of assistance from the community. Please consider even a small gesture of giving and sharing to those in need. With your help, we hope to provide every family with a more festive holiday season.
