The Pennsylvania State Police of Troop E are partnering up with the United States Marine Corps for their fifth annual “Stuff the Cruiser” toy drive to benefit Toys for Tots. On Saturday, November 14th from noon until 4PM State Police Troop E will hold their “Stuff the Cruiser” toy drive in the parking lot of Wal-Mart in Erie County’s Summit Township. You can participate by donating new, unwrapped, nonviolent toys for boys or girls and suitable for all ages from infant to teenager and your donations will go to help economically struggling families in the local area this Christmas. The Marines and Troopers at the event will be observing COVID-19 protocols and kindly ask for the public to do the same.
The Pennsylvania State Senate approved a bill that would require all state owned buildings to display the flag honoring soldiers who are prisoners of war or missing in action. The bill would change Pennsylvania’s standards so that all buildings and grounds owned by the state which display flags would fly the flag of the United States, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the POW-MIA flag which honors those who never came home from war. Pennsylvania is home to about 800,000 veterans and more than 1,100 men and women who have been missing in action since World War I.
