New Bedford Firefighters Team With United Way for Toy Drive

 

TSM – Firefighters sorting toys at Station 6

Dozens of off-duty firefighters assembled at Station Six on Purchase Street to do their part for the annual United Way-New Bedford Firefighters Toy Drive. 

Firefighters collected more than 3.000 toys donated this year by local merchants and the general public.  They also collected more than $2,000 to buy even more toys. 

Those off-duty firefighters on Tuesday went to work sorting toys, then putting them in large plastic bags for delivery to 14 non-profit agencies around the city.  Captain Rick Shea says his guys love getting involved, even on their own time.

Capt. Shea says the firefighters serve as the “manpower” for the toy drive, picking up toys from various collection sites, and delivering them to the non-profits.

Those agencies, like Pace and the Schwartz Center distribute those toys to needy families in the area.
