The Forsyth County Fire Department is once again helping children in need as part of its eighth annual Aerial’s House toy collection.
The public is asked to drop off unwrapped toys at the department headquarters, 3520 Settingdown Road, or any of the fire stations throughout the county.
Toys may also be dropped off under the Christmas tree in the lobby of the Forsyth County Administration Building on East Main Street in downtown Cumming.
“Aerial’s House has helped brighten the holiday season for local children for years and it is something fire department personnel look forward to every year,” said Fire Chief Danny Bowman.
“All firefighters naturally want to make a difference in this community, so collecting toys for children in need is a fantastic way to truly help make the holiday season special for local families.”
In 2009, the charity served more than 2,000 children, doubling its collections from 2008. The fire department is hoping for another successful year.
Toys are distributed with help from the Forsyth County Family YMCA.
