Brooklyn Park Public Safety Puts Out Call for Help

Brooklyn Park, MN (Dec. 5, 2019) –The Brooklyn Park Police and Fire Departments need your help in bringing holiday cheer to less fortunate families.

The Brooklyn Park Police and Fire Departments have partnered with the Glenda Clayton Breast Cancer Toys for Tots Foundation. This foundation was started by Latrina Caldwell in 2014 in honor of her Aunt, Glenda Clayton. Glenda was known in the neighborhood for passing out toys to the less fortunate families in our community, to ensure everyone had a good holiday. Latrina has continued her aunt’s work, collecting toys each year and distributing them to families in need.

This year the Glenda Clayton Foundation finds itself with a shortage of toys, jeopardizing the holiday season for so many families. The Brooklyn Park Police and Fire Departments are asking for the public’s help in collecting toys, particularly for teens.

The city has set up drop off points at both police precincts, at 5400 85th Avenue North and 7608 Brooklyn Boulevard. The Fire Department is also accepting donations at the central fire station at 5700 85th Avenue North.

For more information about this holiday call for help, contact Deputy Chief Mark Bruley at 763-493-8304 or
