Cleveland police prepare holiday toy drive for children

West side business already taking donations

CLEVELAND - The leaves on the trees may still be green, but it's not too early for the Cleveland Police Athletic League to start preparing for their annual holiday toy drive.

The drive is starting early this year in hopes of bringing in more money and toys, since the organization did not have enough toys at last year's Christmas party.

It is expected that over 6000 children will be attending this year and Cleveland Police want to make sure every child will go home with a toy.

Cleveland CycleWerks is the first of what will be several locations taking in donations for the children.

"Any toys that can be donated will go right to the kids" said Scott Colosimo, owner of Cleveland CycleWerks.

The Cleveland Police Athletic League is also seeking volunteers to help distribute toys to the children. Please visit clevelandpal.org for more information on how to donate a toy or help volunteer. Additional locations will soon be listed on where to make a donation in your area.

Cleveland CycleWerks is located at 1265 West 65 Street in Cleveland. They are currently taking donations during regular business hours.

The Christmas party will be held at Cleveland Public Hall on December 21.
