Cape Coral Fire Department launches annual toy drive

By Staff | Nov 25, 2020

The Cape Coral Fire Department is collecting toys and gifts at all 11 fire stations throughout the city.

Until Dec. 14, the CCFD will collect toys and gifts for children in our community who have special needs, suffer from chronic illnesses such as cancer, are in foster care, or have families struggling with financial difficulties.

Donations for boys and girls of all ages (newborn to 17 years) are needed. Gifts for teens are often in short supply. Please consider donating gift cards, makeup, body soaps and lotions, perfume or cologne, arts and crafts supplies, sport equipment, or entertainment items for this age group.

Collection boxes for the toy drive are located at each of the 11 fire stations throughout Cape Coral:

Station 1 – 4610 Coronado Parkway

Station 2 – 701 Nicholas Parkway

Station 3 – 1627 Everest Parkway

Station 4 – 2007 Santa Barbara Boulevard

Station 5 – 1029 Diplomat Parkway

Station 6 – 4540 Chiquita Parkway

Station 7 – 3942 Burnt Store Road N

Station 8 – 707 SW 1st Street

Station 9 – 4107 Pelican Boulevard

Station 10 – 3623 Gator Circle West

Station 11 – 1038 Burnt Store Road

“Last year, over 1500 children received toys,” said Fire Chief Ryan W. Lamb in a prepared statement. “This year due to the impact of COVID-19, we expect the need to be even greater. We are grateful that through the continued support and generosity of the Cape Coral community, we are able to help our neighbors enjoy the holiday season, which they may not otherwise be able to do.”
