Cambridge Fire Department Joins Toys for Tots Drive, Please Consider Dropping Off New, Unwrapped Toys to Your Neighborhood Fire House

 

CAMBRIDGE FIREFIGHTERS JOIN WITH MARINES IN ANNUAL

“TOYS-FOR-TOTS” DRIVE - 2022

 

Cambridge Firefighters will once again partner with the United States Marine Corps Reserve in collecting toys in the annual “Toys-for-Tots” drive. In existence for 75 years, 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, 281,000,000 needy children throughout the United States have benefited from the donation of over 627,000,000 toys.

Toys-for-Tots is a program that brings all elements of a community together for a common cause for a few weeks each year, dedicated to helping in the development of our children. Toys-for-Tots delivers a message of hope to children who have little reason to have hope for the future.

The Cambridge Fire Department is once again proud to work with the Marines in this great endeavor. New, unwrapped toys may be dropped off at any Cambridge Fire Station until Thursday December 8, 2022. All toys will be delivered to the USMCR by December 9th.

Monetary donations can also be made via the Toys-For-Tots Website: www.toysfortots.org

Thank you for your continued generosity.
