COVID 19 & Fire Truck O' Toys in 2020

We’re seeking Santa’s Helpers again this year!

Being a kid in the hospital is scary! Doing it in 2020 – even more so! The mission of Fire Truck O’ Toys is to make sure every hospitalized kid gets the chance to experience the joy of the holiday season through the simplest of gifts – a toy
And, no pandemic is gonna get in our way!

We just have to be a bit different this year! Because of COVID-19, social distancing is a must for the safety of every one of our sponsors, our family and especially for the kids we want to help! Many of our traditional collection sites remain closed to the public. The fall and winter seasons only increase the likelihood of any infection.
This doesn’t mean we are stopped from reaching our goal!
This year, we are asking for monetary donations. As always, every dollar donated will go directly to the purchase of toys for our hospitalized kids. As a 501(c)3, we can make every one of those donations go further by buying and delivering toys directly to our hospitals! That makes donating even easier!

If you believe in this mission,
please consider making a donation here.
We can’t do it without each of you!




To spread the joy and magic of Christmas to all of the children who are spending their holidays in our local children’s hospitals through the simplest of gifts – a toy!

OUR GOAL FOR 2020: 5,000 TOYS!
