DPS Partners with Toys for Tots

Posted: Updated:

From the Department of Public Service:

The Texas Department of Public Safety has partnered with Toys for Tots, a national charitable organization that collects toys to give to needy children. DPS will serve as an official Toys for Tots collection center.

We do ask toys remain in their original packaging. Toys for children ages 0-2 and 12-13 of either gender are in the most demand. Some examples of appropriate toys for the 0-2 range are teething rings, plush toys, ring towers or anything that would stimulate their senses. For the 12-13 range, appropriate toys include board games, books, jewelry, and anything to prepare them for their teenage years.

For more information on Toys for Tots, please visit their website at http://www.toysfortots.org/.Residents are invited to donate toys any time between now and December the 13th at the following locations:
