Each year Boise Fire Department supports the good work of the Toys for Tots program and The Idaho Foodbank. All Boise Fire Stations have donation boxes available now to drop off new, unwrapped toys and canned food. Items can be dropped off from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. every day. The Marines will pick up the toys on December 20.
Each of our fire stations are also collection sites for The Idaho Foodbank. Here are some of the most-needed items: canned fruits and vegetables, packaged grains, pantry staples (canola or other cooking oils, whole wheat or all-purpose flour, etc.) and shelf-stable dairy (boxed or canned). Food donations will be accepted until January 1. Our goal, as in years past, is to help provide every child in the treasure valley with a present to open on Christmas, and a healthy meal.
