Fire Chief Mike Rose and members of the Wyckoff Volunteer Fire Department, in conjunction with the Wyckoff Lion’s Club, are helping to bring the Toys for Tots Train to Wyckoff on Saturday, Dec. 8.
On board that special train will be members of the United States Marine Corps and Santa Claus, who will stop to collect gifts for the Corps' Toys for Tots Foundation. Their mission is to collect new, unwrapped toys during November and December each year and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children.
Wyckoff’s Bravest are asking for residents' help.
They're asking for donations of new, unwrapped toys to be dropped off at Fire Company No.1 (1 Scott Plaza,) Community Engine Company No. 2 (180 Wyckoff Ave.,) and Sicomac Engine Company No. 3 (428 Sicomac Ave,) during November and the first week in December.
The gifts can be dropped off any Monday evening from 7:15 to 9:15 p.m.
Residents can also drop their gifts at the Lion's Club Tree Sales on Franklin Avenue at the Getty Gas Station parking lot. Toys will be accepted until Friday, Dec. 7.
All gifts collected will be brought to the Main Street Station for pickup on Dec. 8 at 11:45 a.m.
