ABOUT FIRE TRUCK O'TOYS
There are close to 1,000 kids spending holidays in our 5 local children's hospitals ranging in age from premature babies to early twenties from all 50 states and over 80 countries
Fire Truck O’Toys is a St. Louis Non-For-Profit committed to donating toys to children in our local-area hospitals created in 2011 by Children’s Miracle Network Ambassador, Mackenzie Scott. The response to her mission was amazing! To date, we’ve delivered more than 20,000 toys to the boys and girls who need it most. Our goal this year is to deliver 7,000 toys to all five of our child-focused hospitals this holiday!
There are lots of great ways to donate including dropping off toys, making monetary donations and even visiting our favorite blizzard maker – no, it’s not the Freeze Miester! So, get in the giving spirit and help our hospitalized kids have a great holiday
OUR FIRE TRUCK O'TOYS TEAM
As a small child, Kenzie was diagnosed with a degenerative bone disease called Legg-Calves Perthes. During her treatment time in both SSM Cardinal Glennon and ST. Louis Children’s Hospitals, she noticed many children and families missing the opportunity to share in the joy of the holidays. It has since been her mission to make sure every hospitalized child and family receives that joy in the form of the simplest of gifts at Christmas – a toy!
You might say Santa knows a thing or two about toys and making kids of all ages smile! This jolly old soul is always willing to make a special trip during his busiest time of the year to help Kenzie spread joy and cheer. The St. Louis cookie business also sees a significant spike around the time he comes to town to take a ride in the Fire Truck O’Toys!
This loveable Polar Bear may be used to the cold weather but he has a heart that warms everyone he touches. A personal friend to Santa – and a sometimes resident of the North Pole during the summer time, Louie brings his hijinks, his bear paws and his hockey helmet with him to brighten every smile!
Billy has spent over 22 years playing on the radio (18 of those in St. Louis) and is the winner of the Missouri Association of Broadcasters “Major Market Talent of the Year,” as well as being nominated Radio & Records “Major Market Talent of the Year.” He has served as a judge on USA Network’s “Nashville Star.” Outside of his radio gig, he is a proud Dad and husband and also moonlights as “Santa’s Little Helper.”
Julie is the co-host of “Billy & Julie in the Morning” along with Billy Greenwood on 103.3 KLOU-FM. You might have seen her previously as the host of “Show Me St. Louis” on KSDK-TV where she was nominated for a Mid-America Emmy in the category “On Camera Talent” Performer/Host.” And when she’s not lending a hand to Santa, she’s volunteering at various pet and dog shelters around St. Louis.
