Look for Salisbury Police officers on the roof

  • Posted: Wednesday, November 20, 2013 5:57 a.m.

The Salisbury Police Department announced Tuesday that police officers will spend the weekend of Friday, Nov. 29. at 6 a.m. through Sunday, Dec. 1 at 4 p.m. on the roof of Krispy Kreme, 1428 W. Innes St. Volunteers will solicit donations for the Toys for Tots Program, sponsored nationally by the Marine Corps Reserve.

This year’s event marks the sixth annual “Up on the Rooftop” toy drive to be conducted at Krispy Kreme Doughnuts by the Salisbury Police Department. Citizens wishing to support the Toys for Tots cause are asked to bring new, unwrapped toys or monetary gifts.

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts will remain open 24 hours on both Friday and Saturday in support of the toy drive. Citizens can look for the “hot light” to stay on all night and will receive free doughnut coupons as they stop by to donate to Toys for Tots throughout the weekend. In addition, Santa Claus may offer site visits to encourage citizen donations.

Citizens may make checks payable to the Toys for Tots Foundation. All monetary donations (including cash, checks and gift cards), will be turned over to the Toys for Tots program for additional toy purchases. Donations for boys and girls, infant to 12 years, will be collected with 100 percent of all donations supporting area children in need.

Rowan County Toys for Tots Coordinator Arbe Arbelaez, who first began volunteering with Toys for Tots in 1985 while in the Marine Corps, shares that the Krispy Kreme toy drive produces remarkable support for local youth each year.
