Roseland Police Department to Host Toy and Coat Drive Through Dec. 13

ROSELAND, NJ — From now through Dec. 13, the Roseland Police Department is hosting a coat and toy drive in partnership with Toys for Tots and the Jersey Cares Coat Drive to help bring toys and coats to those in need. 

Those interested in helping the department bring holiday cheer to a less fortunate child and warmth to a person in need should drop off new or gently used coats and/or new un-wrapped toys and gifts in the collection boxes located in the lobby of the Roseland Police Department—located at 15 Harrison Avenue, across from Roseland Borough Hall. Drop off is available 24/7.

According to the department, Jersey Cares hopes to collect and distribute more than 30,000 "gently used" winter coats to those in need throughout New Jersey. Over the past 21 years, more than 500,000 coats have been collected for New Jersey residents through Jersey Cares’ Annual Coat Drive.

In addition to donating an article of clothing to someone in need of warmth, a warm coat can enable a jobseeker to continue his or her search during the winter months or help a senior go out for medication in a storm. What might be just a coat hanging in the back of a closet for one person might provide life-changing support for another.

The Toys for Tots Foundation helps less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas and unites communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign.

Contact the Roseland Police Department with any questions at 973-226-8700.

The Thought that Counts

The other day I was talking to our cat . . .  

Hmmm.  It says here that dogs are smarter than cats.

What are you reading, Mad Magazine?
