In 1990 the late Chief Martin Concini Jr., saw a need to contribute to those families in Northumberland who were in need during the holiday season. Chief Concini started a Christmas toy program for kids, which ended with his death in 1992. Since 1998 the police department has been collecting toys for the less fortunate in his memory. Since 1998 the program has grown considerably and it has been our privilege to assist families in Northumberland, Point Township, Sunbury, and many other communities.
