The Lake Forest Police Department is proud to partner with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve for their annual Toys for Tots campaign. For many years we have served as a collection point for Lake Forest residents to drop off their toy donations.

The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children  experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause  during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.

Thank you for supporting our mission!
