TVF&R: Spread holiday cheer for children in need
By Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescu
Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue firefighters are dedicated to responding to the fire and emergency medical needs of the community at a moment’s notice. This holiday season, firefighters are asking community members to help them come through for less-fortunate children as well.
For more than three decades, the KGW Great Toy Drive has provided hundreds of thousands of toys to our community’s less-fortunate families in Oregon and Southwest Washington. The toys collected during the toy drive are distributed to needy kids in our area with the help of more than 120 local organizations and hundreds of dedicated volunteers.
Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue has been a longtime partner in supporting KGW’s Great Toy Drive. TVF&R fire stations are once again accepting new, unwrapped toys for children of all ages now through Monday, Dec. 24.
With the help of our generous community members, TVF&R firefighters were able to fill a fire engine and box truck full of toys to deliver to the KGW studios last December. This year, the need continues to be great, and firefighters hope to exceed last year’s collection effort.
Beaverton-area residents can drop off any new, unwrapped toys at their local fire station:
- Aloha Station 62, 3608 SW 209th Ave.
- Bethany Station 68, 13545 NW Evergreen St.
