The Brentwood Fire and Rescue Department is teaming up with the United States Marine Corps Reserves' Toys for Tots Program. Collection is already underway and will continue til Dec. 23 for new and unwrapped toys for underprivileged children throughout Middle Tennessee.

“This is our seventh year helping collect Toys for Tots,” Brentwood Fire Chief Brian Goss said. “We hope to continue with the success we had from years past.”

Over the past six years, more than 7,000 toys with an estimated total value of almost $75,000, has been collected by Brentwood residents.

Staff Sergeant Eugene Silva with India Company, 3rd Battalion, 24th Marines and the Nashville Area Marine Corps Toys for Tots Program Coordinator is excited for this year’s Toys for Tots.

“Last year, Toys for Tots had a record breaking year, with more than $6.4 million raised and more than 220,000 toys donated nationwide,” Silva said. “This would not have been possible without organizations like Brentwood Fire and Rescue who were instrumental in the success of the campaign in Williamson County.”
