Fire Department Collects Nearly 800 Toys

The City of Santa Barbara Fire Department is pleased to announce the results of our annual Toys for Tots campaign.

This year, your City fire stations collected 790 toys. These toys will be distributed to local children this year. A wide variety of new, unused toys will be given out to children over the next few days.

Each holiday season the fire department places a large red box near the front entrance of each fire station. Toys are retrieved and stored by firefighters. Toys this year ranged from stuffed animals to a brand-new bicycle. Department members and volunteers work together to inventory the toys and they are then distributed by the Toys for Tots program.

Please extend a heartfelt thank you for helping us make a child’s holiday season so much more memorable.

The program will continue next year.
