CAPE CORAL, Fla. — The Cape Coral Fire Department will be collecting toys and gifts for children in need until Dec. 14.

Many of these children have special needs, such as chronic illness, foster children, or families struggling with financial difficulties.

Donations for boys and girls are needed, newborn to 17-years-old.

Gifts for teens are often in short supply. Please consider donating gift cards, makeup, body soaps and lotions, perfume or cologne, arts and craft supplies, sports equipment, or entertainment items for this age group.

Collection boxes for the toy drive are located throughout Cape Coral at each of the 11 fire stations:

Station 1 – 4610 Coronado Pkwy.

Station 2 – 701 Nicholas Pkwy.

Station 3 – 1627 Everest Pkwy

Station 4 – 2007 Santa Barbara Blvd.

Station 5 – 1029 Diplomat Pkwy.

Station 6 – 4540 Chiquita Pkwy.

Station 7 – 3942 Burnt Store Road N

Station 8 – 707 SW 1st St.

Station 9 – 4107 Pelican Blvd.

Station 10 – 3623 Gator Circle West

Station 11 - 1038 Burnt Store Road

“Last year, over 1500 children received toys,” says Fire Chief Ryan W. Lamb, “This year due to the impact of COVID-19, we expect the need to be even greater. We are grateful that through the continued support and generosity of the Cape Coral community, we are able to help our neighbors enjoy the holiday season, which they may not otherwise be able to do.”
