Statesville Police Department Announces 2023 Fill the Trailer Toy Drive Kickoff
The Statesville Police Department is thrilled to announce the kickoff of the SPD 2023 Fill the Trailer Toy Drive, a community initiative aimed at spreading holiday cheer to families in need. Many families in our community face financial hardship and are unable to provide the extras that make the holiday season special for their children. We believe that with your help, we can make a significant difference and bring joy to these families.
The official kickoff for this year's Fill the Trailer Toy Drive will take place at Pumpkinfest in Downtown Statesville on November 4th, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. We invite you to join us at this event and bring your new, unwrapped toys or gifts suitable for children and teenagers aged 0-17 years. We will be located at Tradd and Broad Street.
We welcome a variety of gifts, such as:
- Board games, cards, travel games, puzzles, and books
- Sports-related items, including footballs, basketballs, soccer balls
- Electronic handheld or portable games
- Manicure sets, hair & nail accessories, fragrance sets
- Hat & glove sets, scarves
- Art & drawing supply sets, craft sets, educational toys
- Remote controlled vehicles, toy cars, action figures, dolls
Please note that we cannot accept gift cards, monetary donations, clothing, stuffed animals, or food items.
We have also created an Amazon Wishlist. View our 2023 Fill the Trailer Toy Drive Amazon Wishlist here.
