Christmas firefighter Toy CollectionPress release from the Arcata Professional Firefighter’s Local:

Each year, the generosity of our residents makes the Arcata Professional Firefighters Local 4981’s toy collection the largest local contribution to the Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots Program.

Since 2005, Arcata Firefighters have partnered with the Marine Corps Reserve’ Toys for Tots and each year we have been amazed by the compassion and generosity that the Fire District residents have shown by making sure every child has a wonderful Holiday season.

This year, The Arcata Professional Firefighters Local 4981 will be accepting new, unwrapped toys until December 29th, 2016. You can drop off your donation at any of these five locations:
