Toy Drive 2013
The Violet Township Fire Department’s Annual Holiday Toy Drive is in full gear and runs through December 23, 2013.
Many children may not receive gifts this
holiday season without everyone’s help. The Violet Township Fire Department and the Violet Township Firefighter’s IAFF Local 3558 are leading the effort to collect NEW, UNWRAPPED toys for area children. There is also a great need every year for gift cards and monetary donations to assist families of older kids or those with special needs. Toys may be dropped off at any Violet Township Firehouse and many local businesses throughout the Pickerington/Violet Township area.
Call us for locations, or just look for the Big Red Box at area retail and community gathering locations!
You may also search for the Violet Township Firefighters Toy Drive on Facebook® for regular updates. If you are a family in need, please contact Fairfield County Information and Referral at (740) 687-0500 as soon as possible to begin your paperwork for assistance. The Fire Department does not directly help any families; however, we assist numerous social service organizations in the Violet Township area with distribution of the items received from our collection drive.
