Annual Toy Drive Held At Penn Daw Fire Station 11

Fairfax County Fire and Rescue, in partnership with Firefighters and Friends to the Rescue, continued its annual toy drive with distribution day Dec. 10 at Penn Daw Fire Station 11. “Over 60 schools, shelters, and nonprofits requested our assistance this year,” said Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Deputy Battalion Chief Willie Bailey. “In the end, we were able to distribute over 3,500 toys, including bikes and gift cards.” According to The Connection Newspapers, "Representatives from local organizations provided information to the firefighters and picked up bags full of gifts collected by the firefighters and provided by sponsors. “Though we remain in a pandemic our sponsors were not going to let that prevent them from supporting the event this year,” said Bailey, who began the toy drive more than 22 years ago. “We received several calls from our sponsors hoping that we would find a way to pull off the distribution and as always, the sponsors stepped up to make this event a great success." As per The Connection Newspapers, "Sponsors for the toy drive include Ken & Kelly Savittiere Foundation; Jack Taylor Alexandria Toyota; Apple Federal Credit Union; Chadwick’s Restaurant; Five Guys (Sam Chamberlain); Union Street Public House Restaurant; Energesco Solutions LLC; Progressive Firefighters of Fairfax; Local 2068; Fairfax Fire & Rescue Retirement Assoc.; Nationwide Credit Corporation; SEIU-512; Kelly’s Irish Times; Democratic Women of Clifton and Northern Va.; Medocracy, Inc.; Dr. Fauzia Abbasi; Heart Care Imaging; Rotary Club of Tysons Corner; Fairfax County Police Department; and Movement Studios."
