NAFD 4th Annual Toy Drive for Local Children

Help Local Children and Donate a Toy for the Holidays

Matt Davis and the North Andover Fire Department will be hosting their "4th Annual Toy Drive for Local Children."

Firefighter Matt Davis started this drive four years ago with a vision that every child would wake up Christmas morning with a toy.  No child should go without.

Working with approximately fourteen other local fire departments a toy drive was formed. The mission is to keep it local:  All toys are distributed to children north of Boston.  Matt works closing with the  North Andover Youth Center, Woodridge Homes and a few other local groups that are resources for children in need.  Last year most of the toys stayed in North Andover. 

Yesterday the North Andover Merchants Association donated $250.00 of toys to Matt.  All toys were purchased in town from our local merchants, Kids Karousel,  Just Dance Wear & Boutique and sleds were donated by Main Street Hardware.

Residents are encouraged to bring new, unopened and unwrapped toys -- for kids of any age group -- to either North Andover Fire Department station. Station 1 is located at 124 Main St., right next to TownHall. Station 2 is at 9 Salem St. Call 978-688-9590 for more information.  You can bring toys tothe Fire Department for this charity up until Dec. 20.
