A new way to brighten the holidays for children in need

A new way to brighten the holidays for children in need

Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue encourages community members to support the KGW Great Toy Drive in a different way this year to help brighten the holidays of children in our community.

Due to COVID-19 and the need to prevent its spread and limit exposure, TVF&R will not be collecting toys at our fire stations.

Instead, people wanting to support less-fortunate families in Oregon and Southwest Washington can visit

www.kgw.com/toy for alternative ways they can contribute to the KGW Great Toy Drive.

This year, participants are being asked to make a secure monetary donation online or purchase items on Amazon and have them delivered to KGW. For those who want to support local businesses and shop for toys to donate, the KGW website will also help you find an alternative official toy donation drop-off location near you.

Families in need of holiday assistance can call 211 or visit 211info.org.

Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue knows that we serve a generous, compassionate community, and we hope to return to our annual tradition of collecting toys next year. Until then, stay safe and thank you in advance for helping contribute to brighter holidays for children in need.
