From the Covington Police Department:
The Annual Caroline Darby Memorial Christmas Wish for 2016, formerly known as Toys for Tots, is getting under way with the Covington Fraternal Order of Police Lodge # 43. It’s that time of season again, when children are looking forward to, and getting excited, about the arrival of Santa Claus. Unfortunately, there are children that will not receive anything for Christmas unless the community steps forward with donations of toys or money.
Last year the Caroline Darby Memorial Christmas Wish put a smile on the faces of over 500 children in the Covington area that are less fortunate than others. We are asking for the community to assist us with the donation of new toys or monetary donations. Please help us in assuring the unprivileged children in our area have a Merry Christmas. Our tentative distribution date is Saturday December 10, 2016 9am-12pm at the Greater Covington Center, 317 N Jefferson St., any donation that you can assist us with will be greatly appreciated.
