December 2016

The Lexington Police Department will once again partner with the United States Marine Corps for the "Toys for Tots" Campaign. The department serves as a collection site for new, unwrapped toys. Help us once again "Fill the MRAP" and bring smiles to area children and make their Christmas morning special. The Police Department will also be on site throughout the community accepting donations. Detailed information is listed on Page 2 of Town Topics

In addition to the "Toys for Tots" Campaign, the Lexington County Recreation and Aging Commission is sponsoring Project Warmth. This year we would like to provide our seniors in Lexington County with warm fuzzy fleece blankets. Local businesses and citizens can contribute through both monetary donations as well as new blanket donations. 100% of monetary donations received will go to the purchase of new blankets! For more information contact (803) 359-9961 x.227. 

Finally, Lexington Interfaith Community Services (LICS) is accepting donations to fill holiday baskets to provide Christmas Dinner to area families. You may prepare a full basket or donate items to help complete baskets. Wish list items include: Ham/Turkey (frozen or canned), canned sweet potatoes, canned collards, stuffing mix, cranberry sauce, cornbread mix, green beans and dessert mix (complete box kit). For more information contact Anna Smith (email), Director of Community Relations at (803) 957-6656 x. 228. 

Thank you for your contributions this holiday season to help those in need. I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
