Eloy Police Department Christmas Giving Tree at the Ranch

Sergeant Kristie Barnette

Season’s Greetings! Every year the Eloy Police Department conducts an annual toy drive where we adopt families in need. These families live in Eloy and only Eloy citizens are permitted to participate in the program. This year our officers are nominating families they have recognized as having a need. We are planning to provide not only gifts but holiday dinners to the families. We also plan to expand our program to include some of the elderly who may be in need of a holiday meal.

Those of you at Robson Ranch have been generous and have continued to help the Eloy Police Department make sure that the children of Eloy have a happy Christmas. All donations are exclusive to Eloy.

This year the Eloy Police Department will be placing a Christmas tree at Robson Ranch. The tree will be equipped with candy canes and tags that detail the gender and age of a child as well as general gift ideas. Please feel free to peruse the tree.

The Eloy Police Department accepts toys, books, games, puzzles, etc. as well as monetary donations.

Monetary donations can be given in any amount and checks made payable to the Eloy Police Department Community Fund. Monetary donations are used exclusively for our toy program. Eloy Police Department employees go toy shopping and select toys for the program. We also may purchase clothing items such as coats, backpacks, socks, etc. Monetary donations are a great option if you would prefer we do your shopping for you as the holiday season is busy.

Any assistance you can provide is greatly appreciated. Those of us at the Eloy Police Department look forward to providing the less fortunate of Eloy with the magic of Christmas.
