A bright, colourful toy donation box now sits in the lobby at police headquarters. On one side, tiny handprints make up a painting of a Christmas tree, Olaf the snowman from the movie Frozen smiles a lopsided smile on another side, and proudly signed at the back of the box are the names of more than a dozen Grade two and three students from Greenland Public School. The kids came to HQ on November 25 to help paint the donation box for a toy drive hosted by the Employment Unit.
