For the first time ever, this holiday season, The Upper Merion Township Police Department is partnering with Upper Merion Emergency Aid (UMEA) to help our community’s families. Annually, the UMEA collects toys and donations to provide our community’s families in need with a joyful holiday during difficult times in their lives. This year, The Upper Merion Police Department wants to assist in making this holiday season an even bigger success. We will begin collecting new, unwrapped toys of all kinds to be given to Upper Merion residents in need, starting Wednesday, November 21st in the upper lobby of the Township Building!
