This is the 15th annual Georgetown Fire Department Toy Drive to benefit Toys for Tots.

Chief Beardsley, the Fire Chaplain, Fire Explorers, friends and families were assisting as well, collecting and counting toys. Driving through every street in town, the popular Santa Tour event brought Santa and his sleigh through town collecting toys for local children in need.

Those interested in donating can find several convenient drop offs around town, including Town Hall on Library Street, the Peabody Library on Maple Street, The Spot restaurant on West Main Street, the Georgetown Building Supply on East Main Street, and the Public Safety Building on Central Street, in both Police and Fire Department lobbies.

On Saturday, December 13, Firefighters will be joined by the Honorable Few Marine Corps League Detachment 1302 at the annual Stuff the Sleigh event, held at Georgetown Building Supply, 103 East Main St.

All are welcome — the event runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
