10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Dublin Justice Center, 6565 Commerce Parkway
The Dublin Police Department is hosting its third annual “Fill A Cruiser” event to collect donated toys to ensure local kids receive a present this holiday season. This is in partnership with the Get Behind The Badge initiative aimed at supporting families of first responders in need.
Community members who would like to participate can drop off unwrapped gifts at the Dublin Justice Center from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4. There will be a drive-thru area outside the Justice Center so people can make their donations from their vehicle.
To help represent all age groups, please consider donating presents for children in two age categories: newborn to 10 years old and 11 to 17 years old. Gift cards are also accepted and can make an enjoyable gift for young adults. Additionally, Get Behind The Badge uses gift cards to purchase clothing or other items.
Get Behind The Badge will coordinate giving donations to first responder families as well as local kids who are facing hardships at home.
Last year’s “Fill A Cruiser” event secured more than 600 toys for families as well as cash and gift card donations that went to purchase more than 50 winter coats.
Get Behind The Badge
Get Behind The Badge was established in 2001 after the line of duty death of Whitehall Police Officer Terry McDowell. Since then, Get Behind The Badge has been able to provide financial assistance to the families of law enforcement and fire fighter personnel who have been killed or critically wounded on or off duty.
