Everyday Connecticut State Troopers encounter children in need. Many of these children would not wake up Christmas morning with a smile if it were not for the generosity of the people of Connecticut. Due to this need, each State Police Troop is dedicated to the success of “Stuff A Cruiser Holiday Toy Drive” which is a statewide effort between Connecticut State Police Department and the citizens of the State of Connecticut to team up to assist families in need during this holiday season.
On Saturday, Dec. 8 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. off duty troopers will personally be on hand to collect toys at all sites across the state. The new, unwrapped toys will be distributed to local social services agencies located in the same area where the toys are collected.
In Montville, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, off-duty officers from Troop E will collect toys which will be donated to William W. Backus Hospital and Lawrence + Memorial Hospital.
