Westgate Mall to Host Brockton Police Department’s 20th Annual Project Guardian Angels Toy Drive

BROCKTON, MASSACHUSETTS (November 2021) - Westgate Mall (ShopatWestgateMall.com) will host

the Brockton Police Department’s 20th Annual Project Guardian Angels Toy Drive. Westgate Mall shoppers are encouraged to donate to help make the holidays brighter for those in the local Brockton community.


This annual toy drive brings together the Brockton Police Department and community members to help those in need, especially during the holidays. Donations of new toys (unwrapped), wrapping paper, non-perishable food items, gift certificates, coats, hats and gloves (new or cleaned) are all encouraged. Shoppers can drop-off donations near Burlington at Westgate Mall. Days and hours of collection are Friday, November 26 through Sunday, November 28, 2021, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. They will return on Saturday, December 4 and Sunday, December 5, 2021 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.


"The innocence of a child is something that has to be preserved for as long as possible. We are asking our community to participate by buying toys, coats, hats, gloves or even socks, gift cards -- anything that can help a family in need. We will be outside in front of Burlington and inside Westgate Mall; please come out and participate,” urges Brockton Police Officer Rosie Vazquez-Browne. 


“Westgate Mall is pleased to continue our partnership with The Brockton Police Department on Project Guardian Angel, a wonderful program to collect hundreds of toys, clothing and food items for families in need in our area,” says Rebekah Macchia, Marketing Director of Westgate Mall. “This longstanding program spearheaded by the Brockton Police Department is a true tribute to the generosity and caring of the Brockton community,” she adds.
