The Newton Police Department is calling on residents to donate presents to the Holiday Gift Drive for families in need.

There are more than 170 families who need help during the holiday season, and the donation pile is not growing quickly enough to meet their needs.

The City of Newton has teamed up with the Village Bank to get gifts to Newton children who won’t otherwise receive them.

Residents can drop an unwrapped gift – a book, toy, CD or gift card from a local Newton merchant – at any of Village Bank’s donation box locations, listed below.

Auburndale: 307 Auburn St 

Newtonville: 332 Walnut St 

Nonantum: 411 Watertown St 

Newton Highlands: 56 Winchester St 

Waban: 89 Wyman St. 

West Newton: 1369 Washington St.

Donations should be dropped of by Dec. 14 so that organizers have time to get them ready for families.
