Lexington, S.C. (November 30, 2020) – Chief Terrence Green announced Monday that the Lexington Police Department’s annual Toys for Tots “Fill the MRAP” campaign begins today - Monday, November 30, 2020. It will continue through Wednesday, December 9, 2020, with donation events scheduled at the Icehouse Amphitheater, Learning Express, Lexington Pavilion, and Walmart.

The Marines Toys for Tots Foundation is anticipating additional requests from families this Christmas due to those affected by layoffs and loss of employment due to the coronavirus pandemic.

As in years past, the objective for this year’s Toys for Tots campaign will be to fill the Lexington Police Department Emergency Services Team (E.S.T.) MRAP vehicle with toy donations. Unless needed elsewhere, the E.S.T. MRAP vehicle will be at each planned event.
