Daisy Mountain Firefighters Charities

Daisy Mountain Firefighters Charities volunteers unpack donated toys from a previous year’s event.

The Daisy Mountain Firefighters Charities kicked off its 12th annual toy drive on November 28, but the collections continue through the holidays. 

“Each year we collect toys for children in Valleywise Health and HonorHealth hospitals,” said the charity’s president, John Gusich.

“Donations also contribute to our Christmas Adopt-a-Family Program, in which we help local families in need of assistance with making Christmas special.”

Crews will be collecting at Amped Coffee Company, 3434 W. Anthem Way, Anthem, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, December 5. Drop off toys at Local Jonny’s, 6033 E. Cave Creek Road, Cave Creek, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, December 5. 

A second drive-thru event will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, December 12, at the Daisy Mountain Fire & Medical administration building, 41018 N. Daisy Mountain Drive.
