A note to our community: "Over 2500 toys later, our 2nd annual toy distribution event comes to a close after giving hundreds of area children and their families more to look forward to on Christmas morning and during this holiday season. Pictured here, now empty, is our aptly named "Community Room" where countless events, public meetings, gatherings, briefings, and celebrations have been held since the building was constructed in 2000. This space was filled repeatedly over the last several days, not just with toys and other items for those in need, but with generosity, thanks, gratitude, and empathy that exemplifies the warmth, togetherness, and sense of community that is Montpelier. We leave you, at the conclusion of this wonderful event, with thanks and appreciation to Toys For Tots of Central Vermont, area businesses and organizations who hosted a donation box, and the amazing Central Vermont community members who filled those boxes, and our hearts, this holiday season. We are here, always, and proud to serve you. Wishing you health and happiness, Your Montpelier Police Department" Happy Holidays!
