|Operation Christmas Kids Toy Run 2020|
|November 21, 2020|
The Skippack Fire Company is a non-profit organization serving the fire, rescue and emergency needs of Skippack Township and the surrounding areas. This year we are joining forces with Plymouth Community Ambulance Association (PCAA) as they hold their 11th Annual Operation Christmas Kids Toy Run. This operation is sponsored by PCAA and includes numerous other Emergency Services agencies from Montgomery and surrounding Counties.
The event on Saturday, December 5th, 2020, is designed to collect unwrapped toys for children that have to spend the holiday in the Hospital. On December 5th, participating Emergency Services agencies will gather at PCAA’s Main Station, located at 902 Germantown Pike in Plymouth Meeting, PA to meet with the community. At 1PM the agencies and their respective vehicles packed with toys will drive in procession to deliver the gathered toys and bring a smile to all the children at Bryn Mawr and Saint Christopher’s Hospitals.
This operation helps bring smiles to ill children and helps their families with offsetting some of the holiday costs that they may not be able to afford due to medical bills. We are requesting donations of gift cards or new, unwrapped, and unopened toys to be used to provide a better holiday season for sick children.
The Skippack Fire Company will be conducting a toy drop off on Tuesday December 1st from 7 - 9 pm on the side of our station (1230 Bridge Road) with the flag pole and Painting With A Twist. All vehicles should enter on the drive closest to the station and will then loop around and exit the drive closest to RT 73. Due to current events with Covid-19, the Skippack Fire Company and all participating will strictly follow CDC guidelines regarding social distancing. Unfortunately, due to the probability of spreading the disease, we are unable to collect any stuffed animals, clothing, or cloth items – so please do not donate any toys that are not NEW AND UNOPENED. If you can not make the drop off on 12/1 you can drop off your items in the front lobby of the door located at the front of our building Monday-Friday from 8 AM - 5 PM through December 4th.
