Many local fire and rescue departments throughout Montgomery County and the Washington metropolitan region will again be collecting toys for needy families and underprivileged children during the 2010 holiday season starting on November 20, 2010.  For many years various Montgomery County volunteer fire and rescue stations have worked with local community groups, civic organizations and government agencies to make the holiday season a little better for area families.
All Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Stations will serve as drop off sites for new unwrapped toys, including those toys to be used for existing annual local volunteer fire department initiatives supporting neighborhood and local community holiday programs, as well as, the regional 2010 Toys for Tots Campaign in conjunction with the United States Marines. 

Fire Chief Bowers and Marine Corps representatives will be on hand for the official Montgomery County kick-off and photo opportunity with the Marine Corps LAV25 tank and fire trucks. Fire Departments throughout the metro region, including those in Montgomery County will be collecting toys for children during the 2010 holiday season.
