First Responders Children’s Foundation and its valued partners SB Projects, CSX, SERVPRO, Mattel, Hess Toy Trucks, Good360, and Toys for Tots are hard at work right now, ensuring that 250,000 free toys will be delivered to children across the United States during a most challenging holiday delivery season.
The Toy Express program provides a personal way to show gratitude to uniformed heroes and their families, and due to a rise in line of duty deaths in 2021, FRCF has increased its efforts to include families of first responders who have died in the line of duty and communities that have faced other significant hardships.
Last year, Toy Express impacted 346 cities across America, reaching 102 police departments, fire departments and hospitals.
“First Responders and their families have endured significant hardships this year,”said Jillian Crane, President of First Responders Children’s Foundation, “and the social and emotional impact it’s had on them is immeasurable. Keeping that top of mind has strengthened our commitment to delivering toys and joy this Christmas.”
Any business or individual can hop on the virtual Toy Express and buy a toy for families that have lost a first responder this year.
Donations can also be made by texting TOY to 24365.
