Leesburg - Leesburg Police are getting ready for the holiday, they've already begun their foster child toy drive.

A group of businesses has partnered with the police department to collect new toys for foster children to open at Christmas. Jenkins Grocery is one of the collection sites and store employees have already filled up one box. Todd Whigham says, "We like to see every kid have a good Christmas. We're big on that, we like to help with whatever we can with helping kids."

Leesburg Police Chief, Charles Moore says, "The kids are already in a bad situation, they're not going to be with their parents for the holidays and it's not the foster parents fault that they can't buy a lot of toys for the children, so this is our way to give back to them and make them have a happy Christmas and that's what Christmas is about."

There are several places you can drop off toys:  Hughes Ace Hardware on Highway 19 in Leesburg, Jenkins Supermarket in Leesburg, Leesburg Police Department, Lee County Fire Department on Highway 195. They need unwrapped toys for boys and girls.
