West Virginia State Police
West Virginia State Police troopers are collecting toys and nonperishable food items for the state's needy residents in cooperation with the Salvation Army. This marks the seventh year the agency has worked to collect goods to help others.
More than 100,000 toys and food items have been collected by 60 state police detachments over the years through the project. Last year, more than $6,000 in toys and food was collected.
The Salvation Army requests that only nonperishable food items and new and still usable toys be delivered to state police locations. All donations will be forwarded to West Virginia families prior to Christmas. All donations will be distributed back to local residents. State Police cannot accept monetary contributions. Individuals who wish to donate money should contact their local Salvation Army office.
