Summer toy drive a success
Submitted By the City of Fremont
Toys arenÕt just for the holiday season. Just ask any of the local children who recently benefitted from a summer toy drive in Fremont.
The first-time event, earlier this summer, was prompted when counselors from the Youth and Family Services Division of the Fremont Human Services Department noticed some local families didnÕt have the resources to enroll their children in summer programs or purchase toys to keep them busy during summer.
Thanks to the generous donations and volunteer hours from City of Fremont staff, Fremont Fire Station No. 4, local businesses and Fire Eye employees, more than 30 local children and their families received bags filled to the brim with toys that will provide them with a summer full of activities and family fun.
