Firefighters 4 Kids will make a comeback in December 2021 

After a crazy and complicate 2020, Firefighters 4 Kids will be able to return to assist families in the Columbus area in 2021.  During 2020, the program faced many challenges like many other non-profits and businesses in Central Ohio.  Fundraising was put on a hold, and the annual NBC4 Toy Drive were unable to take place.  In the true nature of giving, the Firefighters 4 Kids program did provide toys to several local agencies in and around Columbus to allow them to assist families that may come to them while the program was out of service.  This has caused a dramatic depletion in any toy inventory and funds that the program has for the 2021 toy program.  This year, with the comeback of the program, NBC4 will also sponsor the toy drive at a new location and with a renewed energy to help the families in Columbus.  Stay tuned for more details on how you can help, and when signups will begin for this Christmas season.
