The Eckville Fire Department took to the streets on Dec. 1 for their Third Annual Toy Drive.
The firefighters were spread out around town collecting cash and unwrapped toy donations for Santas Anonymous from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
They were stationed as you came into town on Highway 766 by the GTI, by the UFA on 54 Ave., in front of the Eckville Fire Hall and on Main Street at the 50 St. and 51 Ave. intersection next to Fields.
The firefighters had a goal to beat their 2017 total of $6,002.50 and with the support from the town residents, they did.
This year the Toy Drive brought in $6,030.49, along with two tables of toys.
In a statement on their Facebook page the Fire Department said they are, “absolutely amazed at the generosity of this small town” adding they are “thankful and proud to be apart of such a caring and generous community.”
All the donations will be given to the FCSS’ Santas Anonymous program and distributed to people in need this holiday season.
