Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services would like to announce we will be participating in the Toys for Tots program again for 2018. Please bring your new, unwrapped toys to a Cherokee County fire station nearest you before December 15th. Donations are also being accepted at the Fire Headquarters Office at 150 Chattin Drive in Canton, Georgia.
“We hope to continue with the success we have had from years past. Cherokee County Fire & ES has collected thousands of toys over the last several years with over 1100 toys distributed in our community last year,” stated Cherokee County Assistant Fire Chief, Eddie Robinson.
The Atlanta Toys for Tots Campaign supports 17 counties in metro Atlanta including Cherokee County and all toys collected stay in these counties. Please remember this charity when you are out shopping this holiday season and help them fill all the requests this year!
For over 60 years, the Marine Toys for Tots Program has delivered a message of hope to less fortunate children through the simple act of providing a new toy. The Atlanta Toys for Tots Campaign is anticipating another successful season in 2017 and will work with local agencies to bring the joy of Christmas to the children in Atlanta.
Atlanta Toys for Tots is a local affiliate of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program and helps needy families throughout the metro-Atlanta area by playing an active role in the development of one of the nation's most valuable natural resources – children. The organization seeks to unite community members in a common cause each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign to better local communities in the future. Information regarding monetary donations and volunteer opportunities can be found on our website www.atlantatoysfortots.com.
