Here is a report on the Toys for Tikes program from the fire department.

The Vernon Fore Department delivered toys to more than 450 children from 216 families on Monday night.

More than 150 volunteers attended to help get the delivery completed within 3 hours. 

Thanks to all individuals, businesses, and community organizations that helped with donations for us to purchase new toys and those who gave toys.  Our schools and local businesses did a great job in collecting new toys on our behalf. 

Finally, we wouldn't have been successful without the box trucks that were donated from local businesses to help us get the toys out quickly & dry!  The firefighters annual toy drive was a success because of the generosity of many and we thank you for helping us support Vernon's kids.
