Auburn, Ala. - The Auburn Public Safety Department invites the community to participate in its 2013 Auburn Toy Drive. The program is designed to assist families in the Auburn community by providing Christmas gifts to needy children, ages 3-8.
Anyone wishing to register a child for a gift can complete a registration form at the Auburn Police Division at 141 North Ross Street. Registration days are on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. with the last day to register being November 20. To be eligible, a parent or legal guardian must provide a picture ID, the child’s social security card and birth certificate and two of the following three items: current light bill, water bill or lease/rental agreement.
Donations to the Auburn Toy Drive may be dropped off at the Auburn Police Division building at 141 North Ross Street, at any fire station or at Uncle Bob’s Self Storage at 1231 Gatewood Drive and 2020 South College Street. Special thanks to Uncle Bob’s for providing these additional drop-off points. The deadline for donations is December 16th.
Donated toys should not be gift wrapped, so that donations can be placed into age-appropriate categories before being delivered the week before Christmas. Monetary donations are also accepted, but purchased gifts are especially appreciated.
