FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

             TOY DRIVE PLANNED THIS WEEKEND BY STATE POLICE 
  Everyday, Connecticut State Troopers encounter children in need. Many of these children would not wake up Christmas morning with a smile if it were not for the generosity of the people of Connecticut. Due to this need, each State Police Troop is dedicated to the success of the “STUFF A CRUISER HOLDAY TOY DRIVE,” a statewide effort between the Connecticut State Police Department and the citizens of the State of Connecticut to “team up” to assist families in need during this holiday season. 
   On Saturday, December 3, 2011, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., off-duty Connecticut State Troopers will personally be on hand to collect toys at all sites (listed below) across the state. The new (unwrapped) toys will be distributed to local social service agencies located in the same area where the toys are collected.
Connecticut State Troopers will be collecting toys at the following locations:
