MCFRS Collecting Toys For Needy Families


Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Stations will be collecting toys to donate to local organizations involved in donating them to families in need this holiday season. Starting Wednesday, all MCFRS Stations will act as drop-off locations for the Toys for Tots Campaign, which began in 1947 when U.S. Marines distributed 5,000 toys to underprivileged children. It became an annual event that grew into a national organization. Those interested are encouraged to donate new or used toys to the effort through Dec. 18. The Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rescue Squad is located at 5020 Battery Lane.
