Last night a team of @hotstuffcalgaryvolunteers helped our brothers and sisters at the @cfdtoyassoc wrap presents in advance or their annual CFD Toy Association Christmas Party for Children being held Dec 18th.

The Calgary Firefighters Toy Association is a volunteer, member-led organization that accepts donations of toys and funds for their annual Children’s Christmas Party. Although not operated directly by the Calgary Fire Department, the department supports the association by allowing members of the public to drop of individual donations of new, unwrapped toys for the children’s party at Market Mall Calgary on behalf of the Calgary Firefighters Toy Association.

The Calgary Firefighters Toy Association was first launched in the 1940s when firefighters cleaned and repaired used toys to donate to underprivileged kids. For more than 50 years, Calgary firefighters have volunteered their time to keep this tradition alive for children who are less fortunate. Active and retired Calgary firefighters raise up to $50,000 each year (about half the required funding) for this volunteer-run event.

Please consider dropping off a toy at the Market Mall location or contact @cfdtoyassoc for ways you can contribute to make someone less fortunate have a Happy Christmas.
