A Toys for Tots drive is coming to town to bring presents to low-income kids.
Locals can drop off new, unwrapped toys in building lobbies around Reston Town Center this Thursday.
The charity toy drive benefits Toys for Tots and is held in partnership with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve’s annual campaign. The drive runs from Nov. 29 to Dec. 7.
On the final day, a special collection event will be held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in front of the pavilion.
The Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department began its toy drive last Monday (Nov. 19). The collection is part of the Annual National Capital Region Fire and EMS Departments’ 2018 Toys for Tots campaign.
Fire stations will accept checks made payable to “TOYS FOR TOTS” and new, unwrapped toy donations until Dec. 12.
The nearby stations are located at:
- 1820 Wiehle Avenue, Reston
- 2610 Reston Parkway, Herndon
- 1117 Reston Avenue, Herndon
Last year, the department collected more than 14,000 toys, according to the website.
Thanks to everyone who has already dropped off toys for #ToysForTots at our fire stations! Boxes already filling up. On this #CyberMonday if purchasing gifts, please consider purchasing a toy to donate to a needy child. #fcfrd #MondayMotivation pic.twitter.com/HvrfLGdpCW
