Police Join Marines in Toys for Tots Campaign

The Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department has released the following:

The men and women of the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department are proud to join forces with the US Marine Corps in the annual "Toys for Tots" campaign.

Each one of the six police precincts and police headquarters are now collection points for new, unwrapped toys for deserving children. In addition, our beat police officers will be glad to accept your contribution of new toys and will ensure their safe delivery to the precincts and on directly to the Marines.

New unwrapped toys can be dropped off at the following precincts and/or headquarters;

  • Police Headquarters - 201 Habersham Street
  • Westside Precinct - Police Memorial Drive, just off Chatham Parkway
  • Downtown Precinct - E. Lathrop Avenue
  • Central Precinct - 32nd and Bull Street
  • Skidaway Precinct - 7216 Skidaway Road Suite-A
  • Southside Precinct - Oglethorpe Mall, at the rear near Belk
  • Islands Precinct - 200 Blue Fin Circle, Suite-208

Since 1947, US Marines have been looking after America's deserving children at Christmas through their "Toys for Tots" campaign. It is only fitting that local police join this fine established holiday tradition of bringing a particular element of joy to children who otherwise may not receive a toy for Christmas.

The Marines are guided by three essential core values of "Honor, Courage and Commitment." These are values SCMPD regard highly as well and are proud to work hand-in-hand with the Marines in this worthy endeavor of spreading joy during the holiday season.

For more information, contact Star Corporal George Gundich at 912-651-6990.
