The Loudoun County Fire-Rescue System and the Loudoun Career Fire Fighters Association are participating in the 66th annual Toys for Tots Campaign, sponsored by the United Stated Marine Corps Reserve.
“The department is proud to once again participate in this wonderful program,” said Fire Chief W. Keith Brower, Jr. “Your generosity will help put smiles on the faces of sick or needy children this holiday season.”
The Toys for Tots Campaign began in 1947 when a group of U.S. Marine Reservists collected and distributed 5,000 toys to needy children in the Los Angeles area at Christmas. In 2010, Marines distributed toys to more than 7.2 million children.
From Friday November 29 to December 16, Fire and Rescue stations across the county will be accepting donations of new, unwrapped toys. Please note that toys resembling weapons or toys that could potentially be used as a weapon (i.e. guns, knives, swords, etc.) will not be accepted. To make a monetary donation online, visit the official website at http://www.toysfortots.org/donate.
