The Dunwoody Police Department is doing its part to bring Christmas cheer to children in the city through its “Christmas For Kids” program.

This is the second year that Dunwoody Police will be collecting toys for less fortunate children.

The department’s volunteers will be collecting new, unwrapped toys for children up to 15 years old.

Those children will be invited to a holiday festival where Santa and his helpers will gather to personally hand out the toys.

“Christmas for Kids brings Dunwoody law enforcement, city employees, local businesses, and the community together to help bring a smile to the face of a child who might otherwise have little to smile about during the holiday season”, said Billy Grogan, Dunwoody Chief of Police. “It is our opportunity to think about the welfare of others, rather than ourselves.”

Last year, the community stepped up and helped more than 60 children and their families. The goal this year will be to help those families and then some.

A webpage has been set up where information can be found regarding toy drop-off locations, volunteer information, and program updates.
