Griffin Fire-Rescue Toy Drive underway

STAFF REPORT :::

It’s that time of year again. The Griffin Firefighter Annual Toy Round-up has gotten off to a great start. Fire fighters are busy collecting toys through Dec. 16, at the three city fire stations:

Station 1 at 310 N. Hill St.
Station 2 (Headquarters) at 1420 Ellis Road
Station 3 at 101 Crescent Way

The theme of the Griffin Fire-Rescue toy drive – Children Giving to Children – encourages parents to demonstrate the joy of Christmas giving by making their donations a family event.

Families are encouraged to bring a camera to create a lasting memory of the fulfillment of the true meaning of Christmas.

Toys for boys and girls of all ages are needed and will be accepted daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Toys should be new and in the original packaging and should not be gift wrapped. Toys that cannot be used without adult supervision such as guns, darts and knives will not be accepted.

Monetary donations will be accepted and should be made in the form of a check. Please add “Toy Drive” to the memo line and make check payable to Griffin Fire-Rescue, 1420 Ellis Road, Griffin GA 30223.

Toys will not be distributed to individuals. All toys will be delivered to the Department of Family and Children Services and the Salvation Army on Dec. 17. Those who wish to receive toys must register there.

Business and organizations interested in contributing to the toy drive should contact Capt. Brandon Gates or Erin Blair at 770.229.6415.
