During the past month, all of our Fire/EMS stations and worksites across the County have hosted collection boxes and designated as collection points for the Public Safety "Toys for Tots" campaign. New, unwrapped toys for children of all ages have been dropped off at our collection sites. While a great many toys have been donated there is still work to be done to meet and exceed our goal for toy distribution. There is still time, Saturday, December 16th, is distribution day and additional toys for all ages are needed. Monetary donations to Toys for Tots can also be made. To make a monetary donation go to: https://edgewater-md.toysfortots.org/local-coordinator-sites/lco-mobile/
Fire Chief Ben Barksdale personally challenges each of you to contribute to this program by either donating new unwrapped toy at your own worksite, or by donating funds to the program. Personnel at the Cranford-Graves Fire Services Building and Headquarters have answered the challenge of full toys boxes and challenge all Fire/EMS Stations, worksites and offices to meet the challenge and do the same. There is still time!!! Let everyone see and hear when you meet your challenge by capturing images and sending them to Mark Brady, Public Information Officer, via text at 240-508-7930 or Email at MEBrady@co.pg.md.us. Images will be posted to the Departments Twitter and Facebook accounts.
Any questions relating to the "Toys for Tots" program may be directed to Assistant Fire Chief Alan Doubleday, via firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-883-5203.
