“Any donations we can get are appreciated,” Sgt. Christopher Perry said. “With the economy the way it is, there are still a lot of families that are struggling.”
All the items are given to Newington’s Department of Human Services, Perry said. From Dec. 17 to 19, needy families come to town hall and pick Christmas presents from the donations, he said.
Perry estimated that eight to 10 on- and off-duty and retired officers would help out Saturday. One retiree will play Santa Claus, he said.
Residents with questions or needing more information should call Officer Jamie DeSimone at 860-564-6232.
