Cypress Creek Fire Department is proud and honored to be a local drop-off point this holiday season for residents wishing to donate toys for children in need. Last year alone, the Marine Toys for Tots program distributed 39,285 toys to 9,150 children in the Harris County area. They are looking for even greater participation this year through their donation program, and we encourage everyone to assist us in helping them reach that goal.
CCFD/HCESD13 will be accepting toy donations at every fire station within the district. Marine Toys for Tots would like to have the toys by December 14th in order to have time to sort them and get them where they need to go. If you still have toys that need to be picked up after December 14th, please navigate to the Marine Toys for Tots website to arrange to either have them picked up, or have them dropped off to the campaign.
For Station locations and to contact us, please go to the CCFD/HCESD13 website Contact Us page.
About Marine Toys for Tots:
Toys for Tots has enjoyed over a half-century of success because of the support of millions of caring Americans, local communities, and corporate America plus the dedication and hard work of thousands of U.S. Marines. Toys for Tots is a program bringing all elements of a community together in a common cause each year. It is a program dedicated to helping in the development of our nation’s most valuable natural resource – our children. Toys for Tots delivers a message of hope to children who have little reason to have hope for the future. The shiny new toy at Christmas lets these youngsters know that someone cares. The goal is to motivate economically disadvantaged children to grow into responsible, productive and patriotic citizens and community leaders. The good news is that Marines have been accomplishing this goal for 72 years.
