The DAVENPORT POLICE ASSOCIATION and UNION of Professional Police, along with US ADVENTURE RV are once again sponsoring the annual DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SHELTER CHRISTMAS TOY DRIVE, which benefits the many children and families served by FAMILY RESOURCES INC.

This program can not be successful year after year without the help of donations and support from the community and various businesses.

NORTHPARK MALL, SOUTHSIDE BY FIRESTONE/JC PENNY

SATURDAY DECEMBER 15TH (9AM TO 6PM)

SUNDAY DECEMBER 16TH (10AM TO 5PM)



New "unwrapped" toys or monetary donations will be accepted and 100% of all Proceeds will be used to help provide a Christmas to children who otherwise may not have one.



Donations may also be dropped off at additional locations (Monday through Friday) at US ADVENTURE RV 5120 N. Brady Street and/or State Farm Insurance (Matt Sturdevant) 1903 Pershing Ave.
