The Maryland Department of Natural Resources Police is conducting its annual “Boatload of Toys” drive at several locations including two on the Eastern Shore.
Natural Resources Police officers are collecting donations of new, unopened toys for children in need. The program is part of the national United States Marine Corps Toys for Tots initiative.
On Saturday, Dec. 2 NRP staff will accept new, unwrapped toys at the Berlin Walmart from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Denton Walmart from 10-2.
New this year Marylanders have the opportunity to donate a toy online via a Toys for Tots Registry hosted on Amazon’s platform. Donations can be easily added to an Amazon cart, choosing the “NRP Safety Education Unit” gift registry address that is listed.
“NRP is excited to expand the Boatload of Toys initiative this year,” NRP Acting Deputy Superintendent Brian Rathgeb said. “Additional collection sites and the ability to make donations online will make it easier for Marylanders to spread holiday cheer by supporting local families in need.”
