BLPD Giving Tree 2015

BonneyLakePD_Badge 1.5 inchThe Giving Tree quilt is up in the lobby of the Public Safety Building, and we have a few snowmen available at this time for pick up so you can purchase items from a specific child’s wish list. Each day more and more tags will be added, as the need is so great.

One change from last year is that we will be accepting UNWRAPPED gifts only. You can still place gift wrap in a bag along with your toys and snowman tag.

Please have all tags with gifts returned to the police station by December 10, 2015 to allow us to get the gifts to the schools before the winter break.

You may also donate new, unwrapped toys to the Police Department without choosing a tag off of the tree. We will fill tags with the donated items we receive.

Thank you for all your continued support!
