NORWALK, Conn. – This is a press release, presented in the format in which it was sent:
NORWALK, CT- The Norwalk Fire Department is partnering with Human Services Council’s (HSC) – Children Connection’s annual toy drive, the Children’s Bank. This year, the Fire stations will accept donations of new toys and gifts that will be given to almost 3,000 children living throughout lower Fairfield County. This year’s toy drive will begin on Friday, November 24 and run through December 21.
These children have been abused, neglected and/or are at-risk, many of whom live in foster care or group homes and are struggling with frightening and unclear futures. For some of these children, this is the only gift they will receive.
The locations are:
* Station 1 at 90 New Canaan Ave
* Station 2 at Headquarters at 121 Connecticut Ave
* Station 4 at 180 Westport Ave
* Station 5 at 23 Meadow Street
“This is a wonderful opportunity to provide support to the Human Services Council and help children in need during this holiday season,” said Fire Chief Gino Gatto. “We hope that using the local firehouses will make it quick and convenient for residents or businesses that want to drop-off toy donations this holiday season. Every year, we are so appreciative and overwhelmed by the generosity of Norwalkers.”
