NORTHUMBERLAND — In 1990, the late Chief Martin Concini Jr. saw a need to contribute to those families in Northumberland who were in need during the holiday season. Chief Concini started a Christmas toy program for kids, which ended with his death in 1992. Since 1998, the police department has been collecting toys for the less fortunate in his memory. Since 1998, the program has grown considerably and it has been their privilege to assist many families in Northumberland, Point Township, Sunbury, and many other communities.
Unwrapped toys may be dropped off at the following locations: Northumberland police station or borough office; Priestley/Forsyth Library on King Street in Northumberland; Northumberland National Bank on Front Street in Northumberland; and Surplus Outlet store along Route 11.
