2016 Rock Springs Fire Department Toys for Kids Program Getting Under Way

2016 Rock Springs Fire Department Toys for Kids Program Getting Under Way

ROCK SPRINGS — The Rock Springs Fire Department will once again be sponsoring the Toys for Kids program in Rock Springs. For decades the Rock Springs Firefighters have been collecting and sorting toys that are donated by the kind hearted citizens of our community so that all children are able to receive a Christmas gift.

The Rock Springs Fire Department will begin accepting toy donations November 8. Donations of new toys or monetary donations to support the cause may be dropped off at the Rock Springs Fire Department Headquarters station at 600 College Drive or at the Rock Springs Library at 400 “C” Street. Donations will be accepted at the fire stations until 7:00 pm on Tuesday, December 13, 2016. Please make checks for donations out to “Toys for Kids.”

Anyone who needs assistance in ensuring that their children get a Christmas gift is eligible to participate. In order to equally distribute the toys, you must sign up for the giveaway and schedule an appointment for the day of the giveaway.
