First Responders collecting Christmas toys for Vermont Children's Hospital
The Vermont State Police, City of Burlington Fire Department, the Morristown Police Department, and the Colchester Police Department are teaming up to form “Operation Fire Cuffs”. This will be a joint effort to collect toys for the children at the Vermont Children's Hospital located at Fletcher Allen Health Care.
This is a third year event, which hopefully will carry on for years to come. Last year’s event was a huge success, and this year the goal is to collect even more toys.
The date for this great event will be on Monday December 16th, 2013 at 1:00pm. Presents will be delivered to the Vermont Children’s Hospital by members of the above named agencies and Santa.
If you would like to take part in this event or have questions please contact:
If you are willing to donate a toy, we would prefer they be unwrapped. Any donated toys will be accepted; however the hospital has identified some specific areas of needed toys. The toys include the following:
Infants: Rattles and mobiles.
Toddlers: Musical toys, pop-up toys, stand & walk toys, large blocks, stacking toys and trains.
School Age: Legos, art kits (jewelry making, painting, etc.) and athletic gear (balls, clothes, etc.).
Tweens: Nail polish, body lotion and journals.
Gift cards: Itunes, Walmart, Kmart, Best Buy, Hannaford, Chillis, etc.).
Donations are asked to be dropped off by December 15th, 2013.
Thank you very much for helping make this a special Christmas for these wonderful children.
