Toy drive underway


Staff report



UNION CITY, Ohio — The Friends of the Union City, Ohio, Police Department is again sponsoring a toy program for the Christmas season for 2015.

The purpose has been to collect new toys and donations for distribution to village families that need help for their children’s Christmas. The program has been a great success in past years, organizers said, thanks to the generosity of the people in the community.

Collection already has begun for this year.

Donors are asked to provide only new toys for children from newborn to age 10. Toys or donations may be dropped off to Kathy at the Union City, Ohio, Municipal Building and will be accepted through Nov. 25.

Parents and guardians wishing to receive toys for their children for Christmas through the program are asked to pick up an application at the Municipal Building Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Applications should be completed and returned as soon as possible, but no later than 4 p.m. Nov. 19. Parents and guardians will be notified by phone as to the date, place and time when toys will be distributed to their children. The children must be present in order to receive the toys.

Toys will be distributed in time for Christmas and will be provided to as many families as donations allow. Anyone having questions may contact Kathy at the Municipal Building at 937-968-6664.
