Release by Milford Police Department

The Milford Police Department Community Policing Unit in partnership with the Milford Police Chaplains will begin the Annual Toy and Food Drive beginning November 7th. The Milford Police collect donations of food through the Thanksgiving Holiday. The donated items are dispersed to needy families in the Milford Community prior to the Thanksgiving Holiday.

Following Thanksgiving, donations of Food, Toys and Clothing are accepted and will be dispersed to families in need prior to the Christmas Holiday. Each year, the Milford Police Department is able to provide a little Holiday Cheer to many families in the Milford area. Last year, 1 family which was referred for Christmas items told us that they had “cancelled Christmas” due to having insufficient funds to provide items for their children. The mother was so excited with the donations that she literally fell onto the floor and wept.

Many stories like this are witnessed each year when needy families are helped. It is because of the generosity of the Milford Community that the drive has grown in size each year since its beginning in 1998. We look forward to another great year!!

If you know of a family in need, please email the name, address, and ages and number of children to steven.rust@cj.state.de.us We will do our best to help as many families as possible.

If you would like to donate, we are accepting items of food, as well as new and “gently used” toys and clothing. Anyone wishing to donate items requiring refrigeration, please let the Communications Officer on duty know when you arrive and they will store it properly. All other items may be dropped off at the Milford Police Department at 400 NE Front Street in Milford. The lobby is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
