Peabody Police Chief Robert L. Champagne has announced the commencement of the 10th annual Peabody Police Toy Drive.
The department has been partnering with local agencies to help the less fortunate through the holiday season since 1992.
New, unwrapped toys can be deposited in the collection box in the lobby of the police station at 6 Allens Lane until December 21.
Police spokesman Michael Crane wishes to thank in advance all who participate on behalf of the department.
"The event has previously been a great success and highly impacted families that experience difficulties during this time of year," Crane said.
