(Westport, CT) The Westport Police Department Local Union #2080 in
partnership with the Westport Police Benevolent Association are
excited to announce the commencement of the Holiday Toy Drive, an
annual event that provides toys to underprivileged children throughout
Fairfield County as well as both to Bridgeport and Saint Vincent’s
This program has been extremely successful in the past, allowing for
thousands of toys to be distributed to children who otherwise would
have none. We again ask for your continued support and generosity to
help make this year’s drive a success. By donating, you are guaranteed
to bring holiday joy to so many deserving children.
Weather permitting, Westport Police Officers will accept new,
unopened, and unwrapped toys, as well as cash donations, in the
parking lot of ASF Sports & Outdoors, located at 1560 Post Road East,
Westport, on the following Saturdays and Sundays: December 5 th , 6 th ,
12 th and 13 th between the hours of 9:00AM and 5:00PM. Officers
volunteering on site will be wearing personal protective equipment and
can accommodate the contactless drop off of donations. While it may
look a bit different this year, COVID-19 will not stop us from spreading
Another significant change to please note is that due to building access
restrictions implemented in response to the current pandemic, donations
unfortunately cannot be accepted at Westport Police Headquarters or at
Westport Town Hall as they have been in the past. Despite this change,
new donation locations have been added at several local businesses.
Collection boxes will be set up from the present date until December
14, 2020 at the following Westport stores:
ASF Sports & Outdoors 1560 Post Road East www.shopASF.com or (203) 255-4460
Awesome Toys and Gifts 429 Post Road East www.awesometoys.com or (424) 293-7663
The Toy Post 180 Post Road East www.thetoypostct.com or (203) 557-8888
Donations at these locations can be made remotely and/or in person.
Please consult these individual businesses for their hours of operation.
Any other questions can be directed to Corporal Albert Nowinski via e-
mail at ANowinski@WestportCT.gov or (203) 341-6000.
We would like to thank in advance all of our continually generous
donors. We once again look forward to seeing many of you at ASF
Sports & Outdoors. Best wishes to all for a happy, safe and healthy
holiday season from the Westport Police Department!
