A Season of Giving
Now accepting donations!
Puget Sound Fire, Puget Sound Fire Fighters (IAFF Local 1747), and the Kent Firefighters Foundation proudly sponsor the annual Toys for Joy and Jerry Woods Holiday Engine holiday programs to provide food and toys for those in need during the holiday season.
The Toys for Joy program collects new, unwrapped toys for children up to 12 years of age that are then collected, sorted, wrapped, and delivered to local food banks and outreach programs for distribution to families in need in the communities within Puget Sound Fire’s response area. In addition to toys, non-perishable food, and monetary donations (cash and checks) are also accepted and will go directly towards helping local families. Donations are being accepted at any one of Puget Sound Fire’s fire stations and participating businesses between November 21 – December 20.
Please note: The stations are accepting donations between 8:00am-9:00pm. Please ring door bell if station doors are locked. The fire crews will answer if they are there, but may not answer if they are out responding to an incident.
The Jerry Woods Holiday Engine will be visiting several Maple Valley, Covington, and Kent neighborhoods Friday and Saturday evenings, December 1, 2, 8, 9, 15 and 16, and neighborhoods in SeaTac and Tukwila Sunday and Monday, December 17 and 18. The engine will be collecting food, gifts, and monetary donations that will go to the local food banks for distribution.
