2011 Operation:Stocking Stuffer

All Houston Fire Stations Accepting Toys for Annual Toy Drive

Today, the Houston Fire Department and KPRC Local 2 kicked off the annual “Operation: Stocking Stuffer” Toy Drive.

Citizens may help bring the joy of the holidays to children by dropping off a new or gently used toy at any HFD Station, December 2 – 20.  A complete list of stations and addresses may be found by visiting :https://exchange.kprctv.com/exchweb/bin/redir.asp?URL=http://www.houstonfire.org

Toys may also be dropped off at all Firehouse Sub locations and Los Cucos Restaurants.

Last year, more than 15 thousand toys were collected and given to several thousand families during the Outreach, Inc.  Give-away. This year, the give-away will be held on December 22, 2011, from 8:30 a.m. until all toys have been distributed. The giveaway will take place at the New Light Christian Center located at 7317 E. Houston Road, 77028 near Ley Road in northeast Houston.

Citizens should be aware that toys will be distributed on a first come-first serve basis so there is not a waiting list. Citizens may call 832.394.6632 for this information in English and Spanish.
