Shrewsbury – Despite the cold, chilly weather, a steady stream of residents came to the Shrewsbury Police Department this morning to drop off presents for the Shrewsbury Patrolman’s Local 426 fundraiser, “Fill the Wagon” event. Residents were asked to donate toys which will then be sent to the U.S.  Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program.  (Photos/Bonnie Adams)

Maddie Faucher (l), 4, and her brother Griffin (r ), 2, take advantage of a minute with Santa to share their Christmas lists. The kids’ father, Officer David Faucher, was one of the organizers of the event.
