Menchie’s & Midlands Fatherhood Coalition Toys For Tots Event

Lexington, S.C. (December 1, 2016) – The annual Toys For Tots “Fill The MRAP” campaign continues with an additional event added this Saturday, December 3, 2016 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt located at 5580 Sunset Blvd. in Lexington, South Carolina.

The Lexington Police Department planned this event with Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt to give families a fun way to support Toys For Tots and the event will feature Frederick Hogsett, Jr. of Midlands Fatherhood Coalition who is a professional DJ with Christmas songs karaoke.

Menchie’s will be handing out coupons for five free ounces of frozen yogurt for those who bring a new toy valued at $10 or greater or who pick up the microphone to sing a favorite Christmas song karaoke.

Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt will also be taking 30% of all proceeds that are made during the event and will go on a shopping spree with Chief Terrence Green the next week to purchase more gifts which will be given to Toys For Tots as well.

Chief Terrence Green said, “Our annual Toys For Tots campaign provides gifts to so many children who may not have gifts to open on Christmas morning otherwise. Strong community Partners like Menchie’s and Midlands Fatherhood Coalition do so much to help us reach our goals and their continual support is appreciated.”

For those that cannot make this event, Toys For Tots donations will be accepted until December 9, 2016 and can also be dropped off at the Lexington Police Department at 111 Maiden Lane in Lexington on week days during business hours from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

More information and updates on the Toys For Tots “Fill The MRAP” campaign can be found on the Town of Lexington website along with the Lexington Police Department Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages.
