The Clark County Fire Department is partnering with the Firefighters of Southern Nevada Burn Foundation to support the 23rd annual “Fill the Fire Truck” holiday toy drive for the first three weeks of December.

Starting Friday, Dec. 1, 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 Monday, Dec. 18. Rural volunteer fire stations are accepting donations through Friday, Dec. 16. To find the location of a Clark County fire station near you visit the Department’s website at https://tinyurl.com/yc82nshc.

“The annual toy drive is always a great opportunity to help families in need in our community,” 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 Saturday, Dec. 2. Fire engines and volunteer off-duty firefighters from different agencies will be parked outside stores from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday and Sunday Dec. 2 and 3; Dec. 9 and 10; and Dec. 16 and 17. The list of participating Wal-Mart stores is:
