The departments will also partner with the Farmington Public Safety for a one-day drive sponsored by GLP Financial during Holly Days in downtown Farmington. They’ll collect toys on December 11, 12-2 p.m., at Riley Park on Grand River in downtown Farmington.

The event will include photos with Santa, elves making animal balloons, glitter tattoos, and Christmas carolers, as well as hot chocolate, coffee, and cookies.
