Between December 1 and 21, we’re collecting new, unwrapped toys for the Firefighters 4 Kids organization. All four of our fire stations are accepting donations. Firefighters 4 Kids is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide toys at Christmastime for youth who may not otherwise receive them due to their family’s needs and/or personal tragedy. Every year, for the past 39 years, Firefighters 4 Kids has distributed toys to thousands of children. Firefighters 4 Kids was started in 1977 by Mike Mullins, a retired firefighter from Columbus Division of Fire. Mr. Mullins still runs the charitable program with help from Coordinator William Russell and Columbus Fire Dept. Liaison Doug Smith. For more information about Firefighters 4 Kids, call 614-633-5259. We thank you for your generosity.
