The Richardson Fire Department will begin collecting donations for its toy and food drive on Friday, Nov. 15

The annual event benefits clients of the Network of Community Ministries, a Richardson-based nonprofit serving residents of Richardson ISD.


Items can be dropped at any Richardson Fire Station, the City Service Center or at City Hall in rooms 105 and 202. The department asks that toys are unwrapped and that food is canned or shelf-stable.

Donations will be accepted through Dec. 12, according to information provided by the city.
