2018 Toy Drive Brings Joy to Local Communities

The ABC Public Relations Committee collects toys annually for a Toy Drive, and 2018 reflected the generosity of ABC Members.  Santa will have more than 14 bags loaded with toys to distribute to local families in need.  This year the committee was pleased that they were able to collect enough toys to benefit both the Jones Creek and Oyster Creek Police Departments. 

Special thanks to committee member Matthew Knight of Aggregate Technologies and 2019 committee chair Haley Smith of Performance Contractors for helping us deliver on our commitment to work for the betterment of the communities in which we live and work!

Thank you for your continued support of the Pantry and the BackPack program.  We could not do what we do without you!

Your generosity in 2018 helped:

  • Send home 2,000 weekend backpacks full of food for homeless and chronically hungry students who would otherwise go home to meager or no meals

I want to thank the ABC members for their generous donations of toys.  I have been Marshal of  the Village of Jones Creek for 9.5 years. We have been assisting families in need for 9 years and also during the Christmas season. We learn about those who are struggling and they will be taken care of. The families we help are ones that are making an effort to make it, but are still experiencing difficult times. I’d like to share some of the situations we are facing, for example; three families that are single moms that are working multiple jobs, two other families have parents that have medical issues. These are some of the issues that can be a financial burden.


I’d like to add that we also need to remember the elderly and veterans who do not have families to share the holidays with them. Just a simple visit to say ‘hello’ or providing some snacks or a meal. The holidays can be a very lonely time for these folks.


The Jones Creek Police Department appreciates the support from ABC and its members for thinking of families in need. Thank you for the joy your toy donation will bring to many children and their families.


Wishing you a wonderful Christmas!

It’s cold one day and hot and muggy the next and that can only mean one thing. That’s right, it’s Christmas time in Texas! Celebrating the birth of our Lord, Hot chocolate, Christmas lights and you guessed it (PRESENTS!) Unfortunately, not everyone can have all these things without a little help.

That’s where people like ABC (ASSOCIATED BUILDERS & CONTRACTORS) come in to help. Last year and this year they have donated very generously to this worthy cause.

We at the Oyster Creek Police Department are happy to help. We will have Santa Claus in his sleigh drawn by an Oyster Creek Police Unit deliver these gifts to numerous families in need of assistance. We did this last year as well. Due to everyone’s generosity we were even able to help some families outside of the Oyster Creek area. To see the smiles and excitement on the faces of those children makes it worth every second of time it takes to run this program. 

Once again, we would like to show our appreciation to ASSOCIATED BUILDERS & CONTRACTORS for making this possible.

The Oyster Creek Police Department would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
