For the third consecutive year, we are partnering with WWJ Newsradio 950 and the Detroit Police Department to spread some holiday cheer to dozens of Detroit families in need. The Sergeant Santa toy donation program gives us an opportunity to give back to the community and to the customers we serve.
Now through December 8, we are collecting new toys and other gifts at our XFINITY stores in Midtown Detroit, Rochester Hills and Ann Arbor. You can also drop off your donations at WWJ Newsradio 950 in Southfield and at any Detroit Police Department precinct. The toys will be wrapped and loaded into Sergeant Santa’s sleigh. Led by Police Chief James E. Craig, the Sergeant Santa holiday motorcade filled with police officers, Comcast technicians who serve Detroit customers and other community leaders will deliver the surprise gifts to Detroit families in need.
“It’s important to me that Comcast is supporting this for another year,” said WWJ Anchor Jackie Page.” Anytime you’re organizing a charitable initiative, you need to have strong community partners onboard to create more awareness. Everyone knows Comcast. Everybody knows XFINITY. To have that kind of name recognition behind us letting the community know that Sergeant Santa is out there is really beneficial.”
Over the past three years, tens of thousands of gifts have been donated by generous metro Detroiters to Sergeant Santa. If you would like to drop off toys, gift cards and other holiday gift items at our collection sites, the addresses are:
