The Toys for Tots drive is underway now in Murfreesboro and Smyrna. The toys that are collected will be distributed on December 14th to children in need. Joi Sherill, who is helping with the event, told us that volunteers and toys are needed.
The last day to register children to receive toys will be December 5th and 6th from 5 pm to 7 pm (Thursday and Friday) and Saturday, December 7th from 8 in the morning to 12-noon. Registration is at 2227 Southpark Drive in Murfreesboro.
The Toys for Tots program is a joint effort this year by the Murfreesboro Fire Department, the U-S Marine Corps and volunteers. To learn how you can donate toys or volunteer, call Joi Sherill 596-6101.
The Murfreesboro Fire and Rescue Department Reports:
We are currently very short on toys and very short on volunteer help. Please consider helping us, whether an individual or family or a church group, sports team, club or organization, or business, we need volunteers. To volunteer or gather more information about the give-away email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any new unwrapped toys to donate, there are many boxes around town or you may bring them to any of our nine Murfreesboro Fire and Rescue Stations.
