For more than 20 years, Prince George’s County Fire/EMS Department has teamed up with Prince George’s County Police Department for the Toys for Tots program.

“This year is no exception, we are pleased to join the Prince George’s County Police Department in collecting toys and gifts for the less fortunate children in Prince George’s County,” said Mark Brady, spokesperson for Prince George County Fire/Emergency Medical Services Department.

The Marine Toys for Tots program started 65 years ago. In 2010, Toys for Tots distributed toys to more than 7.2 million children who might not have otherwise experienced the magic of the Christmas holiday season, according to retired U.S. Marine Corps Gen. Pete Osman, president and chief executive officer of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.

The Toys for Tots program collects new, unwrapped toys and gifts each year and distributes them to children in Prince George’s County — and nationwide — in need during the holiday season.

Individuals who would like to take part in the program can drop off new, unwrapped toys at any fire or police station in Prince George’s County.
