FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — The Forsyth County Fire Department is asking for residents’ help in making the holiday season brighter for children in need with the fifteenth annual Aerial’s House toy collection.
New, unwrapped toys for local children in need, between newborn and 18 years old, may be dropped off now through Dec. 15 at any Forsyth County fire station, the Fire Department Headquarters at 3520 Settingdown Road, or at any of the county’s four library branches.
Starting in December, donations for Aerial’s House may also be dropped off under the Christmas tree in the lobby of the Forsyth County Administration Building, located at 110 East Main Street in Cumming.
The project began in 2003 following numerous phone calls from parents asking if the Fire Department could help them with Christmas that year. Since then, toys and the joy of Christmas have been provided to more than 2,000 local children.
The toy collection gets its name from a piece of equipment which is used by the Fire Department known as an aerial ladder truck.
