The Stockton Police Youth Activities annual Christmas Toy Drive benefits children affected by violent crime. The toy drive is in honor of the late Officer Matt Smith who passed away on May 8, 2010 after a long bout with cancer. Stockton PD and partners will collect new, unwrapped toys for children of all ages from December 1st through December 23rd.
On December 25th, Stockton PD (including Chief Jones) will deliver all of the collected toys to approximately 30-35 families starting at approximately 6:00 AM.
In partnership with Stockton PD, the Ports will have a bin located in the front office for toy donations. Each person who donates an item will receive one voucher for a 2017 Ports game upon drop off of the item.
