Toys for Tots

The Brentwood Fire and Rescue Department is now collecting new and unwrapped toys for the annual Toys for Tots program through Dec. 18. 

Donations can be dropped off between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. at any of the four BFR stations or at the John P. Holt Brentwood Library, the Brentwood Service Center or City Hall. 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic a new virtual option to donate is also available through Graceworks Ministries online Amazon wish list

According to a news release, the partnership between the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves and Graceworks Ministries helps provide gifts for underprivileged children throughout the Middle Tennessee.

In 2019 nearly 1,000 toys and an estimated value of more than $12,500 were collected.

"This is our twelfth year collecting for Toys for Tots," BFR Chief Brian Goss said in the news release. “Over the past decade, the community has provided thousands of children with a little bit of holiday cheer. We hope to continue that success this year and invite everyone to give anything they can.” 

“Toys for Tots continues to assist millions of families nationwide. This would not be possible without organizations like Brentwood Fire & Rescue who were instrumental in the success of the 2019 Toys for Tots campaign in Williamson County," Nashville Area Marine Corps Toys for Tots Program Coordinator Sgt. Tony Callahan added.
