Corner Brook Firefighter Wayne George helps pack hampers of toys for children throughout the area as part of the department's annual toy drive.
CORNER BROOK The Corner Brook Fire Department is busy packing hampers of toys to go to needy families throughout the region.
Their annual toy drive is ongoing as the firefighters get together in shifts at the municipal works depot to prepare the toys for children who would otherwise do without. More than 240 families are currently on the list, and the firefighters are working hard to ensure everybody has a Merry Christmas this year.
Firefighter Gord Hamlyn says the community support has been tremendous again in meeting the demand which increases nearly every year.
