BAILEY — Police are collecting donations for the Marine Toys for Tots campaign through Thursday, Dec. 10. 

“We are collecting new, unwrapped toys for the Toys for Tots campaign,” said Police Chief Steve Boraski. “Collection bins are located at the police department and Town Hall.”

Boraski said his department’s goal is to fill at least one of the collection bins.

“Thank you for your kind donations,” Boraski said.
