COLUMBIA BOROUGH POLICE OFFICERS HELP AT TOYS FOR TOTS EVENT

Toys for tots is a program run by the United States marine Corps Reserve which distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas.  Last week two full-time and one part-time Columbia Borough Police Officers joined more than thirty Officers from local municipalities for a few hours of shopping at Ollie's Bargain Outlet in Lancaster.  The Officers filled their baskets with toys, then assisted in checking out at the register and transporting the toys to a designated Toys for Tots distribution center.  The owner of Absolute Fitness paid the bill as an annual donation to the Toys for Tots organization.
