“No child should have to go without receiving a toy for the holidays,” said Warren Whitney, president of Firefighters of Southern Nevada Burn Foundation. “In these economic times, the sad reality is that there is an increased need for toys and more and more people feeling the pinch this year. That’s why we’re asking members of the community to come out this weekend to donate whatever they can so that together, we can bring holiday joy to more children this year.”
