Seventeenth annual toy collection helps children in need during the holiday season

 The Forsyth County Fire Department is asking for residents’ help in making the holiday season brighter for children in need with the annual Aerial’s House toy collection. The initiative gets its name from a piece of equipment which is used by the Fire Department known as an aerial ladder truck.

New, unwrapped toys for local children in need, between newborn and 18 years old, may be dropped off beginning Nov. 11 through Dec. 11 at any Forsyth County fire station or the Fire Department Headquarters (3520 Settingdown Rd.).

In December, donations for Aerial’s House may also be dropped off in the lobby of the Forsyth County Administration Building (110 E. Main St.).

“The Fire Department is honored to be a part of such a wonderful initiative that brings joy to children and families during such a special time of the year,” said Forsyth County Fire Division Chief Jason Shivers. “We appreciate the community’s support for this program each year.”

To receive information regarding the distribution of toys collected through Aerial’s House, call The Place of Forsyth County at (770) 887-1098. For any other questions or to make a large donation, please call Firefighter Jeff Lyons at (678) 513-5899.
