Beginning today through Dec. 13, Eden Prairie’s City Center, Community Center and Senior Center will serve as drop sites for Toys for Tots donations. Look for the Toys for Tots logo near the front desks of each building.
Toys for Tots accepts new, unwrapped toys and games for kids at locations throughout the Twin Cities. They cannot accept clothing, food or liquid products.
In addition, from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 9, EPPD staff will collect toys at Eden Prairie Center mall.
Law enforcement has unique relationship with Toys for Tots. Each year employees from agencies all over the Twin Cities collect toys and load them into squad cars for a procession to the KARE11 studios in Golden Valley where the toys are unloaded and eventually distributed to children who would otherwise not receive a holiday gift.
