Cambridge Firefighters Join with Marines in Toys For Tots Drive
Cambridge Firefighters will once again partner with the United States Marine Corps Reserve in collecting toys for the annual "Toys-for-Tots" drive. Now in its' 64th year, the program was started in Los Angeles, CA when a handful of Marine Reservists distributed 5,000 toys to needy children on Christmas Eve 1947. Since its inception, over 188 million needy children throughout the U.S. have benefited from the donation of over 400 million toys.
New, unwrapped toys may be dropped off at any Cambridge Fire Station until Sunday Dec. 9.
