Seattle Fire collecting Toys for Tots now through Dec. 8

The boxes are arriving!

The Seattle Fire Department is collecting toys as part of the annual Marine Corps’ annual Toys for Tots drive. We have been part of this community tradition for more than 50 years and are pleased to be involved again this year.

Now through Sunday, Dec. 8, the public can drop off new and unwrapped gift items at most fire stations and the department’s administrative offices across the city. (Fire Station 31 is closed; donations are being accepted at neighboring stations.)

Looking for gift ideas?

Teens and children under two years old usually receive the least number of donated gifts. Organizers suggest that clothes and diapers in sizes for newborns through 36 months are always welcome for the youngest recipients. Teens appreciate gift cards they can use to purchase music, clothes or other items.

Thank you for making Toys for Tots part of your holiday tradition. We look forward to seeing you!

(Note: if crews are responding to an emergency, personnel may not be at the station to accept donations. We apologize if that should happen.)
