The Rancho Santa Fe firefighters are once again hosting their annual Toys for Tots holiday toy drive in hopes of making the season a bit brighter for local children.

“We look forward to this event every year,” said Engineer Kyle Carranza, who is coordinating this year’s toy drive. “It’s a simple gesture, but it can make such a difference for these kids. We hope that partnering with Toys for Tots will allow us to reach even more children this Christmas.”
