Every year, Auburn Public Safety hosts a toy drive campaign benefiting disadvantaged families who need a “hand up” in the Auburn area over the holiday season. To meet the needs of our growing community, Auburn Public Safety is trying something new this year.

The 2023 Auburn Toy Drive is turning into a weekend drive-thru donation event! Help us bless disadvantaged children in Auburn by delivering newly purchased unwrapped toys on Dec. 2 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. drive-thru style.

There are many ways the community can get involved.

• Donate toys on Dec. 2, 2023 from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Newly purchased unwrapped toys will be accepted for children ages 2-14.

• Volunteers will be necessary to make this weekend a success! Volunteer your time as we accept donations, organize toys, and distribute them to families in need, all at the Dean Road Recreation Center, 307 S Dean Rd. Register as a volunteer HERE.

• Share information! Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (@coapublicsafety) to stay up to date on Toy Drive happenings and share information.

• Know of a family in need? Registration to receive toys will begin Nov. 1 and run through Nov. 15 online or in-person. Find more details at For questions, email Sidney Hancock at or call 334-501-3113. Thank you for helping us make the holiday season a little bit brighter for those who need it most!
