Toys for Tots is under way for 2012, and the Bloomfield Township Police Department is again a local donation center this year.
The department is now accepting new, unwrapped presents as donations in th lobby through Dec. 3. Gifts may be dropped off at the station 24 hours a day.
"We understand the last few years have been very difficult for many of us, but there are always those who need a little more help than others," the department wrote on its Facebook page Wednesday.
Toys for Tots is organized by the Marine Corps Reserves, which will distribute them to needy children throughout Oakland County.
