Firefighters Gather, Distribute Toys to Local Children

From Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department:

Partnering with private corporations and local businesses, Fairfax County firefighters and paramedics are sponsoring the Thirteenth Annual Firefighters Holiday Rescuers Toy Drive, and will distribute toys Wednesday, December 15, 2010, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. at Penn Daw Fire and Rescue Station 11, 6624 Hulvey Terrace, Alexandria, Virginia.

Department members, the Progressive Firefighters of Fairfax County, Inc., and the Fairfax County Professional Firefighters and Paramedics, Local 2068, have been collecting toys, games, and other items to be distributed to children throughout Fairfax County.

Through generous donations and support from businesses and civic organizations including Deloitte Consulting, Inc., Promax Realtors, the Rotary Club of Tysons Corner, and Walmart, it is anticipated that several thousand school-aged children and their families will receive toys and gifts this holiday season.

The Fire and Rescue Department, with support from Fairfax County Public Schools and the Department of Family Services, plan to reach a record number of children this holiday season.

Firefighters and organizers will be available for interviews.
