  • Shop toys for tots

The deadline for dropping off toys for distribution is December 12, and we encourage people to make donations as soon as possible.

The Ridgefield Police Department and The Toy Chest shop on Main Street are supporting the effort with a "stuff a cruiser" toy drive Saturday, Dec. 2, from 10 to 2 as part of the Holiday Stroll event put on by the Downtown Ridgefield merchants association.

The Toys For Tots campaign is especially challenged this year because there have been so many disasters such as hurricanes and wildfires. "Our fans and employees have generously supported Toys for Tots over the years, and we are pleased to encourage that giving spirit again in 2017".

Children who are registered with any other organization will not be eligible to receive toys through Toys For Tots. Toys for Tots is a 501 (c)(3) charity that can give a tax exempt letter for any space donated to the program.

Toys can also be dropped off at WLKY's studio at 1918 Mellwood Avenue until 5:30 p.m. Friday.

They will accept new, unwrapped toys and cash donations.
