fire fighters with toys

Raleigh Fire Department Participates in Toys for Tots

RFD participated in Toys for Tots this year after being contacted by the Marine Corps League seeking partnership in collecting gifts. This year has been difficult due to COVID-19, and families are really in need of assistance given the challenging financial climate. Chief Griffin approved the idea and each fire station was given a collection box to receive gifts.

Toys for Tots is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve which distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts at Christmas. Bringing a smile to a child's face and life is a very special Joy shared with Tar Heel Unit 733 Marine Corps League Auxiliary (MCLA); Tar Heel Detachment 733 Marine Corps League (MCL); Raleigh Fire Department and Marine Corps Reserve Center Raleigh
