Donations rolled in Saturday afternoon for the Longview Fire Department’s second annual toy drive.
Longview residents gave skateboards, bicycles, board games, balls and more.
The department gathered toys at the Longview Mall and each fire station for the Department of Public Safety to help more than 300 children have a merry Christmas.
“People are showing up not just with one toy, but bags of toys. They are very generous,” said Fire Capt. Tommy Daniel.
In only its second year, Daniel said the toy drive was fine tuning itself. This year the event was expanded to two days, and donations will be accepted today.
