CMPD continues toy drive

CMPD is continuing to collect toys for the holidays.

Police and fire departments throughout Mecklenburg County, and even businesses, have been collecting toy and monetary donations since November.

CMPD Explorers spent Monday getting those toys ready to be placed, and they even wrapped them for the families to open on Christmas morning.

The receiving families in Charlotte are referred to the project by CMS schools.

Some are referred by police officers or firefighters.
