Toy Lift Motorcade
12/5/2013

This year, Santa Claus will be getting a little help delivering toys. Instead of reindeer pulling the sleigh, the ACPD Motor Unit will be delivering toys to the Toy Lift. On Friday afternoon, the Motor Unit will create a motorcade delivering the toys with blue lights and sirens as we enter the Toy Lift at Fashion Square Mall.

The officer elves will pick up toys and donations from the Police Department on 5th Street and the County Office Building on McIntire. County employees have been purchasing toys and leaving donations to be delivered to the drive. The Albemarle County Police Foundation and the Albemarle Law Enforcement Association donated money to purchase additional toys. With the generosity of Albemarle County employees and these organizations, we will be able to brighten the holiday season for children in need.

The officer elves will pack the presents in a police car and the motorcade will leave the ACPD at 1pm. The group will then drive to the County Office Building on McIntire to pick up the rest of the toys from county employees. After all the toys are collected, the motorcade will continue to the Toy Lift. As the motorcade approaches the mall parking lot, the lights and sirens will be turned on as the elves make the special delivery.
