This year the city collected toys from residents and staff at three locations: City Center, the Community Center and the Senior Center. The EPPD also held a special collection event at Eden Prairie Center this year, where dozens of shoppers donated toys.
Last Friday 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 gave the gifts to the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves for distribution to kids who would not otherwise receive gifts this holiday season.
The EPPD would like to thank everyone who donated to Toys for Tots this year.
