Partnering with private corporations and local businesses, Fairfax County firefighters and paramedics are sponsoring the Thirteenth Annual Firefighters Holiday Rescuers Toy Drive, and will distribute toys Wednesday, December 15, 2010, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. at Penn Daw Fire and Rescue Station 11, 6624 Hulvey Terrace, Alexandria, Virginia.

Department members, the Progressive Firefighters of Fairfax County, Inc., and the Fairfax County Professional Firefighters and Paramedics, Local 2068, have been collecting toys, games, and other items to be distributed to children throughout Fairfax County.
