NOPD Second District's Annual Toy Drive Kicks Off This Week

If you care to share a little holiday spirit the NOPD Second District has the answer for you.

The Seventh Annual Adopt An Angel Holiday Gift Drive benefiting the District’s underprivileged children is now underway.

The toy drive is a way to support the community at a special time of year when children look forward to seeing officers bearing gifts.

The Second District is asking the public for support in making a child’s holiday season special.

Beginning November 28, 2017, the Second District is asking for toy donations benefiting children between the ages of four and eight years of age who would otherwise have little to no toys or gifts at Christmas. 

Anyone interested in donating to the toy drive can drop off unwrapped unopened gift(s) from Tuesday, November 28, through Friday, December 15. 

Toys can be brought to the Second District station at 4317 Magazine Street.

If necessary, the Second District can assist by picking up unwrapped – unopened gift(s). Please contact Ms. Tierre Hazlewood at (504) 658-6439 or Officer Edgar Staehle at (504) 658-6029.

Pickup information can also be obtained by emailing
