Murphy Fire Rescue will again help Children’s Advocacy Center by conducting a toy drive for the Christmas season.
New, unwrapped toys for boys and girls will be collected by firefighters starting Monday, Nov. 19 and continuing through Sunday, Dec. 9. Toys can be dropped off from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. at the fire station, 206 N. Murphy Road.
On Saturday, Dec. 1 toy donors can drive through the fire station, hand off toys and receive a thank you candy cane. The drive-through service starts at 5:30 p.m. and continues until 8 p.m.
To accomplish the drive through delivery if coming from the north, cars will have to make a U-turn at either the city hall entrance road or at Murphy Community Center. Drivers are urged to use caution.
During the drive through period, colored Christmas lights will mark the correct bay to enter.
Children’s Advocacy Center was founded in Plano in 1992, serving about 10 percent of the children in the community who have be victimized by abuse or neglect. The center now serves 100 percent of the children in need, free of charge. Since opening, it has helped more than 65,000 children and family members.
