Some History of the fire fighter Toy Drives: goes back 150 years, before towns and villages joined expanding municipalities. Back then, fire halls also served as community centres. When locals suffered a fire loss or were having trouble making ends meet, it was often at the fire hall where do-gooders met to initiate ways to help those who were down on their luck.
The fire fighter tradition of helping the needy during the holiday season took a giant leap forward when ‘Operation Christmas Tree’ was born in 1961. Santa greeted 1,200 disadvantaged children in 14 fire stations across the City of Toronto that year. It was a tremendous success, never to be forgotten by the youngsters, and a very rewarding day for fire fighters as well. It was their first venture of this kind on such a large scale.
