Firefighters for Kids Toy Drive

 

NBC4 is partnering with the Columbus Division of Fire, CME Federal Credit Union, 97.9 WNCI and 93.3 The Bus to hold the 41st annual NBC4 Firefighters for Kids Toy Drive.

NBC4 will host a donation day to collect new, unwrapped toys, gift cards and monetary donations on Saturday, December 8 from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at 3165 Olentangy River Road in Columbus.  Donations can also be made at central Ohio fire stations or any CME Federal Credit Union location now through December 24.

Families needing assistance can register in person at local agencies.  For locations, tap here or call the Columbus City Services Call Center at 614-645-3111.
