LEXINGTON, Ky. – For the fifth year in a row, Paul Miller Motor Company is partnering with the Lexington Fraternal Order of Firefighters (Lexington FOF) for its 87th Annual Toy Drive. The candy-cane striped van will transport toys for families in need, helping to give back to Lexington-Fayette County residents throughout the holiday season.
For this year’s Firefighters Toy Drive, Paul Miller Ford has provided a Ford Transit with custom designed graphics promoting the Toy Drive. This vehicle will visit pickup centers throughout the seven week toy drive, making it easier for the Lexington FOF to collect and transport new, unwrapped toys from donation locations throughout the Lexington community.
Donors can drop off new, unwrapped toys at any drop-off location, including Paul Miller Ford, Paul Miller Mazda and Paul Miller Auto Outlet, before the final pickup date of Dec. 18. The toys will then be delivered to the Toy Drive’s “North Pole” location, the former Eastland Lanes Bowling Alley, located at 750 East New Circle Road in Lexington. Local families in need who have registered for the program will then be able to “shop” for toys at this location at no cost.
On Dec. 18, the drive will conclude with Paul Miller Ford’s annual Cookies with Santa event. The event features kid-friendly crafts, cookies and milk, along with story time and photos with Santa. The Lexington FOF will be on hand for the event and will be picking up the final toy donations from the dealership. Cookies with Santa will take place from 3-6 p.m. at 975 E New Circle Rd. and is free and open to the public.
