High-performance vehicles were lined up for people to check out. Guests were asked to bring new toys and non-perishable food items. The Lower Paxton Township’s K9 unit was also in attendance.

“We are taking toys for families whose adults were either seriously injured in the line of duty or killed in the line of duty, to give those families a chance to enjoy the Christmas holidays” Lower Paxton Township Officer and Handler of K9 Chase Mike Elezovic said.

Lower Paxton Township Police and the F.O.P. teamed up for the event. Each child of a fallen or injured officer will get three toys each, along with winter coats and a complete meal provided for their family.
