Toys For Tots

ToysThe Albany Fire Department would just like to take this opportunity to thank the community and all those that participated in the Toys for Tot's annual Toy Drive hosting it's annual Toy Drive this holiday season.

We, at the Fire Department, proudly serve our community and those that visit throughout the year. The Holidays however, helped to provide a wonderful opportunity to reach not only to those in our community but those in neighboring communities.

As many of you know the Holidays can be an especially hard time for some families who struggle to provide the bare essentials. Through this Toy Drive and with your help the Albany Fire Department was able to provide over 200 children with a toy for Christmas.

Thank you again to all those that donated to the Toy Drive you truly helped to make a difference in a child's life, and we hope to see you again next year!
