It's a sure sign Christmas is right around the corner. The Auburn Department of Public Safety has announced plans to kick off this year's Toy Drive on October 1, 2013.
Anyone wishing to register a child to receive a gift can do so beginning October 1. Registration will take place at the Auburn Police Division at 141 North Ross Street each Tuesday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. until 11 a.m. with the final day to register being November 20.
To be eligible, a parent or legal guardian must provide their photo ID, the child's social security card and birth certificate, as well as two of the following three items: current electric bill, water bill or lease/rental agreement.
Toys can be dropped off at any Auburn Fire station or the Auburn Police Division. There are two remote toy donation drop off sites: Bob's Self Storage at 1231 Gatewood Drive and 2020 South College Street.
Gifts should be unwrapped. No monetary donations will be accepted.
