Sheriff's officials are asking the public to inspire a child and donate an unwrapped, new toy this holiday season.
Kids who might not otherwise receive a gift or a family under hardship might not be unable to provide one, according to a news release from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
The sheriff's department, including the Crescenta Valley Station, will collect gifts valued at least $10, appropriate for children between the ages of one to 12 years old. Deputies ask that you make donations before Dec. 15., but they will accept any toys until Christmas Eve, Monday, Dec. 24.
Children attending schools adopted by the Crescenta Valley Station and children of members of the United Stated Armed Forces serving our Country overseas will receive the toys.
Toys can be brought to the station and placed in the marked bin, located in the lobby.
The patrol station is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 4554 Briggs Ave., La Crescenta. For more information, call 818-248-3464.
