For over 50 years, the Marine Corp Toys for Tots campaign has been the unchallenged leader of spreading hope and joy to children in need across America and New Jersey.
The Marine Corp Toys for Tots campaign goal is to deliver a message of hope to needy children that will bring the holidays to their doorstep where there may otherwise not be any holiday cheer.
The Morristown Fire Department is carrying out this important message to the community this year, when the need is greater than ever. The Morristown Fire Department has been heading up the Toys for Tots program for the past 13 years. Coordinated by firefighter Nick Prizzi, he and his brother firefighters reach out to Morristown and the surrounding area hoping to make these children’s’ holiday the best it can be.
The Morristown Fire Department shared that “We can say enough that Morristown, Morris County and Northern Jersey as a whole have done such a wonderful job in support of this cause. The generosity has been overwhelming, and this holiday season we would like to ask for it again for all the needy children.”
The firefighters hope to be able to reach more needy homes than ever this year. If interested in learning more about the event, like the Morristown Fire Department page on Facebook, and follow it for all the insider info leading up to
