The Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department will be participating in the Annual National Capital Region Fire and EMS Departments’ 2021 TOYS FOR TOTS Campaign. The intent of the campaign is to “bring holiday joy and deliver a message of hope to children.” Stations will accept donations now through Sunday, December 12, 2021.
In years past, our firefighters and paramedics have welcomed residents donating toys into our fire stations. To minimize contact with our firefighters and paramedics, collection boxes will be placed outside the front door of each fire and rescue station every morning. Residents will be able to drop off toys until 8:00 p.m., each evening.
Please help us to help those less fortunate this holiday season. Thanks to the generosity of those who live and work in Fairfax County, we were able to provide the Marines with approximately 23,000 toys last year!
Children who are served by this campaign include toddlers and youths through age 17. The campaign will only accept new, unwrapped toys. Toys used as weapons or considered to be weapons (i.e., toy guns or knives of any kind) will not be accepted. Checks or money orders for donations must be made payable to TOYS FOR TOTS.
Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Stations will accept donations through Sunday, December 12. Toys will not be accepted after this date.
