Bonney Lake Police kick off Giving Tree toy and food drive

The Bonney Lake Police Department kicked off their annual food drive and giving tree today.

Donations of new toys can be dropped off at the Bonney Lake public Safety Building or residents can pick a specific child’s tag off the giving tree quilt located at the department.

Organizer Barb Wigton said this year, gifts for teens, ages 12-18, are especially needed.

Donations are being accepted through Dec. 10 to allow the “elves” at the Police Department an opportunity to prepare and wrap the presents.

In addition, the department’s annual food drive runs through Dec. 14. Drop boxes are located in the lobby of the Public Safety Building, 18421 Veterans Memorial Dr. E. Donation boxes are available from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

All food items are donated to the Bonney Lake Food Bank, Bread of Life Food Bank and the Bonney Lake Senior Center.
