Scottsdale Fire is now accepting unwrapped toys and gift cards through Dec. 20 at SFD fire stations and headquarters.

“These donations help make the holiday season a little brighter for many families. It is very much appreciated,” says Scottsdale Fire Chief Tom Shannon.

Donations are distributed to partner organizations who serve families in need. Annually, approximately 15,000 toys are collected through the toy drive, serving well over 1,000 families.

These agencies include:

  • Vista Del Camino
  • HonorHealth at Shea, Osborn and Thompson Peak
  • Family Promise
  • The Foster Alliance (Formerly Arizona Helping Hands)
  • Arizona Burn Foundation
  • Harvest Compassion Center

Donors are asked to consider gifts for children ages 7-12 and 13-18 years old, as these age groups are more challenging to find appropriate items. Gift cards are great alternatives to selecting something specific.
