Local fire departments are joining together to supply volunteers and fire trucks to help make this year’s Toy Drive a success.

Local sponsors including Wal-Mart, Storage One, and Nevada Legal News have shown their support through private toy and monetary donations.

The Firefighters of Southern Nevada Burn Foundation, a non-profit organization guided by valley firefighters from Clark County Fire Department, Las Vegas Fire & Rescue, North Las Vegas Fire Department, Nellis Fire Department, Henderson Fire Department and National Security Test Site Fire Department, is a charitable organization that reaches out to the Southern Nevada community, as well as the local Red Cross chapter, during catastrophic situations and lends a hand in areas where other organizations are unable to help. The organization provides assistance for sick or injured children through financial aid, clothing and furniture donations. More than 50,000 Las Vegas Valley residents have benefited from the Burn Foundation in the past two years and the organization has raised more than $1,500,000 for the Southern Nevada community since 2003.
