Help SVF&MS spread Christmas cheer with Toy Drive
The department's annual Christmas Toy Drive is once again getting ready to bring a little Christmas joy to about 250 to 300 area families. Firefighters and community volunteers fill hundreds of blue bags for delivery day each year and can always use help collecting, bagging, and distributing toys for children ages birth to 12 years old. Of course, donations are also always needed. The drive would not be possible without generous community support.
Donations of new, unwrapped toys and monetary contributions are accepted at any Sierra Vista fire station until Sunday, December 22. Donations can also be made during the department's Pack the Penske live radio remotes on Wednesdays, December 4, 11, and 18 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. in the Ace Hardware parking lot located on the southwest corner of Highway 92 and Fry Boulevard.
The toys will be bagged and tagged on Saturday, December 21, starting at 1:00 p.m. at Sierra Vista Fire Station 1, located at 1295 E. Fry Blvd. Then the toys will be delivered on Sunday, December 22, starting at about 8:00 a.m. at Fire Station 1. Anyone is welcome to volunteer their time to assist with these activities.
