Firefighters give Christmas presents to nearly 300 children

Firefighter/paramedics worked hours to bundle sacks of toys for almost 300 children in need in the City of Grove City, Jackson Township and Village of Urbancrest area. The Jackson Township Fire Division Firefighters for Kids toy drive, which has been an annual event since the fire department was founded, is one way firefighter/paramedics give back to children in need in the community it serves at Christmastime.

Area businesses, civic groups and residents generously gave money and toy donations to make the 2014 toy drive an overwhelming success.
