Colorado Springs police working on annual holiday gift drive

Posted: Updated:
COLORADO SPRINGS -

The Colorado Springs Police Department is working on their Annual Holiday Gift Drive in partnership with Teens with Promise. They've been involved in 28 previous toy drives; and for the last nine years, they've collaborated with Teens with Promise. Many of the kids over the age of 12 are completely forgotten this time of year. Toys and gifts for kids of all ages will be accepted. 

They began accepting toys on Monday, November 20th, and will continue through Tuesday, December 12th. Collection boxes will be in the lobbies of each of our police stations and the Police Operations Center. Anyone interested in donating may drop off new, unwrapped gifts in the collection boxes at any time – day or night!

You can also join Teens with Promise and the Colorado Springs Police Department for a family fun-filled day and toy drive event on Saturday, December 2nd, from 10 AM to 3 PM, in the parking lot of Garbanzo’s, located at 3779 Bloomington St., Colorado Springs, CO 80922. Bring a gift for a child in need and visit with Santa, while enjoying fun games and free prizes.

Officers of the Colorado Springs Police Department are working to identify families who may not have the resources to provide gifts for their children. Colorado Springs Police officers and Colorado Springs Explorer Cadets along with “Santa” will deliver gifts to these children on December 16th, 2017. CSPD has delivered gifts to approximately 400 children in the Colorado Springs area during past holiday seasons. 

For more information specific to the CSPD Holiday Gift Drive, please contact Officer Bernie Banuelos at 719-444-7410 (ext. 1).
