Toys for Tots 2019

Post Date:11/08/2019 1:27 PM

Is it too early to start thinking about Christmas?

The Clayton Fire Department does not think so.  Our annual toys for Tots drive is underway and this year we are being joined by the Clayton Police Department and the Clayton Parks and Recreation Department, and City Coffee House to make this the biggest year yet. 

We have already begun collecting and new toys can be dropped off at :

  • The Police Department, in the lobby, of 10 S Brentwood Blvd
  • The Fire Station, in the apparatus bay (Forsyth entrance), at 10 N Bemiston Ave.
  • The atrium of the Center of Clayton, 50 Gay Ave.
  • City Coffee House at 36 N. Brentwood

This year the Police Department will also be collecting at the  “Coffee with a Cop” to be held Friday December 6th from 8:30-9:30 AM at the City Coffeehouse and Creperie at 36 N. Brentwood Blvd.  This event will give you an opportunity to interact with representatives from the Clayton Police and Fire Departments as well as helping to bring toys to brighten a child’s Holiday Season.  Join them as they try to fill the squad car with toys to help the less fortunate.

Our Toys for Tots campaign will wrap up with a special Movie Night at the Firehouse.  The Fire Department, Police Department, and members of the United States Marine Corp will be on hand for a special Showing of "The Grinch That Stole Christmas" (2018) on December 7th from 6:00-9:00 PM in the apparatus bay of the Firehouse at 10 N Bemiston Ave.  We will close out this year’s drive with a final “Fill the Ambulance” push to make this our best Toys for Tots Drive ever.
