Toronto - The Toronto Police Service United Way fundraising committee will be selling thousands of Halloween glowsticks for $2 at Union Station on Tuesday, October 30, 2007 and Wednesday, October 31, 2007, at 6 a.m. The annual glowstick promotion is aimed at keeping children safe at Halloween by providing them with more visibility while they are out trick-or-treating.

The Toronto Police Service is a strong supporter of the United Way and has had its own Service-wide campaign for many years. All of the money raised will go toward trying to surpass last year’s Toronto Police Service donation of $563,000.

“The United Way is always there and available to help people and we want to be a part of that,” said Staff Superintendent Tony Corrie, chair of the Toronto Police Service United Way fundraising committee. “We are in the business of making safer communities and we are committed to helping in any way we can,” he said, adding “the glowstick promotion not only raises much-needed funds but also provides our children with an extra bit of safety on Halloween. ”
