To all those who contributed,
It is with great joy and pleasure that I write you this letter. This year, Toys for Town assured a Christmas for 250 kids and provided food for 90 families. With the current economic situation, I was truly amazed to watch the outpouring of generosity from the community. Mothers and fathers driving to the police department with their kids to drop off toys; elementary school kids doing extra chores at home to earn money to help buy gifts; the high school raising over $9,000; and the countless numbers who volunteered their time to help make it all a success.
For the first time in the past three years of running Toys for Town, I felt it necessary to approach the local businesses to solicit additional financial support. I am truly in awe of all that showed true generosity and contributed. To all those who donated gifts, thank you! We received a record number of donations that allowed the program to be a great success again this year.
It is difficult to put into words the admiration I have for those who made this possible. All I can offer is my heartfelt thanks and the hopes that you all know the impact you have on your community. I am in your debt.
I wish for you all to have a safe and happy holiday season this year.
Brian A. Lindquist
Chief of police
Farmington Police Department
