One annual tradition that occurs in the town of Mt. Pleasant brings smiles to all involved. The Mt. Pleasant Police Department will be conducting its annual toy drive, and they are currently looking for the names of families who may need some assistance this year. The Police Department will need names and ages of kids, as well as phone numbers and addresses as well.
Currently, they are collecting new toys until December 19th, with the distribution set for December 21st.
This is a toy drive for kids under the age of 18, and local residents only. There will be a drop box outside of the Mt. Pleasant Police Department.
This is a joint effort with many other organizations involved. The Fellowship Cup is ensuring that all families will be receiving what they need. Also assisting with the drive is Toys for Tots, as well as many businesses and groups in our community that help out.
If you have signed up with one of the other organizations, you will not be eligible for this drive. If you were on our list last year, you are unable to be on their list this year. You must be the custodial parent/guardian for the children.
Under the circumstance that the department has extra gifts, others will be allowed to pick out presents the following day. Ensure that you follow the Mt. Pleasant Iowa Police Department on Facebook for further updates.
Please contact the Mt Pleasant Police at 385-1450 Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 am and 4 pm.
