The Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD) is again teaming up with Toys for Tots to ensure no family is left without holiday gifts this year. 

“We are very appreciative for these partnerships to help better serve our community during the holiday season,” says Colorado Springs Police Department Chief Adrian Vasquez, “We are extremely thankful for our community who continues to show up year after year to make this toy drive possible. We’re excited to be a part of this amazing program again this year.” 

This is the 35th year we have come together for this very special cause. There are a couple of ways community members can be part of this program and help provide holiday cheer to families in need:

Colorado Springs Police Department Donation Boxes

Toys for Tots donation boxes are located at our police substations and the Police Operations Center. The department will accept donations of new, unwrapped gifts for kids and teens. Donation collections will stop on December 18, 2023, to ensure proper time for gift delivery.
