Drop off Toys for Tots at Steele Creek Fire Stations

Toys for Tots(November 23, 2011) The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department (CMPD), Charlotte Fire Department (CFD) and the U.S. Marine Corps have kicked off the 2011 Toys for Tots campaign to help bring Christmas to the underprivileged in Mecklenburg County. The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a shiny new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to needy youngsters that will motivate them to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens, and community leaders.

Throughout the campaign the community is encouraged to bring new, unwrapped toys to any of CFDs 42 fire stations. They would like to have all the toys collected by December 16. There are no set hours for the fire department as they are in and out at all hours. Generally in the daytime they are able to take donations except when they go out to a call. There are three fire stations in Steele Creek:

Steele Creek Fire Stations

Fire Station 26 at 9231 S Tryon Street, near Westinghouse Boulevard.

Fire Station 37 at 13828 S Tryon Street, near Shopton Road West.

Fire Station 38 at 12100 Shopton Rd West, at Withers cove on Lake Wylie.

The items will be collected as part of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Explorers Christmas Project.

CMPD, CFD and the U.S. Marine Corps have worked together for more than three decades to ensure the neediest children in our community have toys to open on Christmas Day. For more information on the Toys for Tots campaign and how you can help please contact Officer Tom Allen at 704-432-1604 or by email at tallen1@cmpd.org.
