Fill a SWAT truck tomorrow

There will be a menacing looking SWAT truck parked in the lot at Crunch Fitness tomorrow, but there is no cause for alarm. The vehicle is there for a good cause.

The Westland Police Department is sponsoring the fifth Stuff a SWAT Truck event, an effort that provides gifts for the Westland Goodfellows No Child Without a Christmas campaign. From 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. the truck will be collecting donations of new, unwrapped gifts for Westland children for Christmas. Crunch Fitness is located at 35715 Warren Road and Santa Claus will be on hand for free photos.

 To help the effort, 99.5 WYCD will be at the event and representatives will be handing out free giveaways to those who donate.

The Westland Goodfellows program has seen a decline in donations this year and the supply of toys for the less fortunate is slim, a spokesman noted. This event is the main source of gifts for the program.
