Fire Department collecting for Toys for Tots
The Birmingham Fire Department is collecting new, unwrapped toys for its annual Toys for Tots Foundation toy drive now through Thursday, December 21, at both Birmingham fire stations, city hall and Baldwin Public Library.
The community is invited to participate in this long-standing tradition by donating new, unwrapped toys for boys and girls of all ages. Donations will be accepted at both Fire Station 1 and Station 2. Station 1 is located at 572 S. Adams Road (between Hazel Street and Bowers Street) and Station 2 is located at 1600 W. Maple Road (between Fairfax Street and Chesterfield Street). The public can also donate at the Baldwin Public Library, located at 300 West Merrill and at Birmingham City Hall, located at 151 Martin.
“Every year since we started this program we have seen such tremendous generosity from the community. This year we have added two new collection spots, one at the Baldwin Public Library and one at Birmingham City Hall. Thank you for participating in this wonderful program," said Birmingham Fire Chief Paul Wells.
For almost 25 years, the Birmingham Fire Department has partnered with the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation in their mission to provide a tangible sign of hope to economically disadvantaged children during the holidays.
