The Clark County Fire Department is partnering with the Firefighters of Southern Nevada Burn Foundation to support the 20th annual “Fill the Fire Truck” holiday toy drive from Friday, Dec. 3, through Sunday, Dec. 19

The public can drop off new, unwrapped toys or gift cards at any Clark County fire station during business hours, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week through Sunday, Dec. 19. Rural volunteer fire stations are accepting donations through Monday, Dec. 13. The locations of Clark County fire stations are available on Fire Department’s website pages at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov

“The annual toy drive is always a great opportunity to help families in need, especially with so many people struggling to get back on their feet because of the pandemic,” said Clark County Fire Chief John Steinbeck. “Our goal is to collect as many toys and gift cards as possible to make the holidays brighter for local kids of all ages.”

Additionally, area fire departments will participate in “Fill-the-Truck” toy drives outside participating Walmart stores starting Friday, Dec. 3. Fire engines and volunteer off-duty firefighters from different agencies will be parked outside stores from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday Dec. 3, 4, and 5; Dec. 10, 11, and 12; and Dec. 17, 18 and 19. The list of participating Wal-Mart stores is:
