DALTON, GA (WRCB) -- The Dalton Police Department wrapped up "Operation Blue Christmas" Friday morning with a donation of toys and money to the Salvation Army's "Sharing Is Caring" drive. 

The monetary donation will be used to purchase more toys to go along with the ones collected, which will be distributed to area families next week.

Over the past month, the Dalton Police Department has collected toys at six sites around the city and also at the Police Services Center for donation to kids in need during the holiday season. 

Toys were collected at the Police Services Center at 301 Jones Street and also at six businesses around Dalton: Dollar General, Mountain Creek Harley Davidson, The Filling Station Restaurant, The Engine Room Restaurant, The Dalton Depot Restaurant, and the Mack Gaston Community Center. 

In addition to the toys, the DPD also collected $240 in monetary donations.

The DPD thanks all the area businesses that participated and everyone who donated toys or money in support of Operation Blue Christmas and Sharing Is Caring.
