Bangor Police officers will be at Walmart in Bangor on Friday, collecting toy donations for the Salvation Army.

Between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Friday, folks can drop off new, unwrapped toys with the officers, who are looking to fill a truck. Well, it's actually a prisoner transport wagon that Sergeant Tim Cotton says they call the Jolly Wagon of Hopefulness when it's carrying toys for kids.

I doubt the Bangor Police officers will slide down the Salvation Army's chimney with a bag fill of toys, but they kind of like Santa's elves, helping the organization that provides holiday assistance for families in Bangor, Brewer, Orrington, Veazie, Hermon, Kenduskeag, Levant, Exeter, and Glenburn. Along with the toy donations, the Salvation Army provides holiday meals and food baskets.

Anyone who wants to donate, but can't stop by on Friday, can visit the Salvation Army Angel Trees in both the Bangor and Brewer Walmart stores.
