Looking for a year round way to support Cops, Kids, and Toys? IthaCan Bottle Return is a new place to drop off your cans and bottles and donate the return to Cops, Kids, and Toys. Fridays are 7 cent return days and all other days are 6 cents. IthaCan Bottle Return is located at 614 Elmira Rd, Ithaca, NY 14850 Please help us spread the word about this new way of supporting Cops, Kids, and Toys.
In 2018 we served more than 700 families and more than 1,500 children. We hope we made a difference.
Since the early 1980’s Cops, Kids & Toys has grown. During the early years the volunteers thought that they were going to fall short, but the Tompkins County community has always come through. Cops, Kids & Toys volunteers work throughout the year raising funds. You may have seen them collecting returnable bottles and cans at the Grass Roots Festival or helping at the Cornell Dump & Run Sale. We could never do it without the support of the community. The program continues with that same goal and has been able to help more families in Tompkins County over the years. Applications are taken for toy delivery in the months of October and November. Cops, Kids & Toys delivered to more than 550 families with nearly 1,250 kids. Monetary donations are accepted anytime at any county law enforcement agency or the Tompkins County Probation Department. Checks should be made out to Cops, Kids & Toys, Inc. Monetary donations may also be mailed (See info on Donation page).
Board Meeting are
the 2nd Tuesday
of each month 1:30pm at the Cayuga Heights Police Department.
The public is always welcome at any board meetings .
