Throughout December Halton Police will once again be accepting donations of toys, food and clothing for the needy at stations in Georgetown and Milton. Warm clothing, such as winter coats, hats, mittens and boots will be collected for the Salvation Army's "Bundle Up" program to be distributed to both adults and children. Any new, unwrapped toys dropped at the stations will also go to the Salvation Army as part of its Toys for Tots program. Especially needed are gifts for kids aged 10 to 14. The program, a partnership between Canadian Tire, the Salvation Army and Halton Regional Police, ensures every child will share in the joy and magic of the season. "Despite the relative affluence of our community, police officers regularly come into contact with people in need. It breaks our hearts to see families who have barely enough money to put food in their children's mouths." said Superintendent Joe Taylor. "We know that the Salvation Army is there helping all year long and we want to do our part." The Georgetown Police station is located at 217 Guelph St. The Milton station is at 490 Childs Dr.
