Fire-Rescue’s Annual Toys For Tots Drive Underway
Dorchester County Fire-Rescue (DCFR) is collecting new, unwrapped toys for Toys For Tots for the third consecutive year.
DCFR collected over seventy-five (75) toys in 2016. With hopes of more than doubling that number, the department has added five (5) additional drop-off locations, throughout Dorchester County.
Malcom Burns, Dorchester County Deputy Fire Chief spearheads the annual campaign.
Burns said “The Toys for Tots program is important. As a parent, knowing that some families, often, have to choose between buying Christmas presents or putting food on the table or paying their electric bill, deeply saddens me. By participating and donating toys to Toys for Tots, we are given the opportunity, to joyfully, take that one difficult decision out of the equation.”
