The Eglin Fire Department donated $3,250 and lots of toys to the kids living at the Children in Crisis Neighborhood to give them a better holiday season.  Holidays can be a hard time for a children in foster care, but  thanks to the donation from the Firefighters of the Eglin Fire Department, these children were not  forgotten.  The toy and change collection was organized by Matt Becker and was the second year in a row for the event.

The donation will help provide food and clothing for children in need. The toy donation really made a difference to our children in need of a safe, loving home.
