While out shopping for your loved ones, the Danbury Fire Department is also hoping the giving season extends to those less fortunate. Firefighters will be at the Danbury Square Mall this afternoon with a fire truck waiting to be filled with new, unwrapped toys for children in foster care.
Fire Chief Geoff Herald says this is a joint effort with Danbury Professional Firefighters Union Local 801 and the state Department of Children and Families. They are looking for gifts for children of all ages, from the youngest through teenagers.
Firefighters will be at the Backus Avenue shopping Center from 10am to 2pm with the fire engine and Sparky, the Department's mascot.
