Yesterday EPPD officers and reserve officers filled squad cars with toys and games for Toys for Tots.
The officers drove to the KARE11 studios in Golden Valley, along with law enforcement agencies from throughout the Twin Cities, where they delivered the gifts to the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves for distribution to kids who would not otherwise receive gifts this holiday season.
This year the City collected toys from residents and staff at the City Center, Community Center and Senior Center. The EPPD also held a special collection event at Eden Prairie Center mall last Saturday where they received donated toys from shoppers.
The EPPD would like to thank everyone who donated to Toys for Tots this year.
