DRPA Officers, PATCO Riders Join Forces For Student Toy Giveaway

Thanks to the kindness of PATCO riders and the generosity of officers with the Delaware River Port Authority who volunteered their time, several hundred area students experienced a brighter holiday season.

Officers with the Penn-Jersey FOP Lodge 30 held their annual Christmas lunch and toy giveaway at Holy Name School in Camden, New Jersey on December 12, 2018.

Approximately 150 students in kindergarten through eighth grade enjoyed pizza and ice cream treats, all served by the officers, all of whom work for the DRPA.

After lunch, Santa arrived and each student was given the opportunity to pick out a brand-new toy.

All of the toys were donated by riders of the PATCO High Speedline. Donation bins were placed in PATCO’s train stations and riders overwhelmingly stepped up to the plate during a month-long toy drive.

Officers with Penn-Jersey FOP Lodge 30 have been hosting the event for nearly a decade.
