The weather outside may be frightful, but a dispatch from Santa's elves at the Police Department on Saturday morning says they still plan to collect toys today and tomorrow for their annual holiday toy drive.
The collection for children in need is scheduled to take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday at the Athletic Shoe Factory, 1560 Post Road East.
Donations also can be made at Police Department headquarters, 50 Jesup Road.
In addition to toys, cash and checks are welcome, according to organizers. The elves will do the toy shopping for you. Checks should be made payable to "Westport PBA."
Police, however, urge people not to hazard a drive if weather conditions turn severe during the snowfall forecast for later Saturday.
For questions about the toy drive, call 203-341-6000.
