State Police “Stuff a Cruiser” Toy Drive @ Participating Walmart stores in East Windsor, Manchester, Newington and Rocky Hill.
Dec 14 @ 9:00 am – 9:00 pm

Schedule your holiday shopping and throw a few extra toys in the cart for the kids at Connecticut Children’s!

For 23 years, troopers from Troop H of the Connecticut State Police have been as busy as Santa’s elves carrying out their December Toy Drive.

With assistance from Ambulance Service of Manchester (ASM) and Aetna Ambulance, the troopers have collected more than half a million toys and more than $220,000 in donations to benefit children who find themselves in the Emergency Department at Connecticut Children’s during the holidays and throughout the year.

Children who have to visit Connecticut Children’s can be overwhelmed with the unknown. Toys collected by the State Police provide a welcome distraction to children and help encourage communication between a care provider and patient. Making a donation today helps provide smiles all year long. Sometimes a toy can be the one thing a child remembers about their visit – a memory you can create.
