Angels for Children 2020 Toy Drive – 22nd Anniversary
Donations of toys are delivered to local children for Christmas by Santa and his helpers. This Toy Drive has provided toys for the less fortunate children in the Wheaton area for the past 21 years. Without your support, this tremendous project would not be possible.
In 1998, a pre-Christmas fire left a Wheaton family devastated. To assist the family, the Wheaton Volunteer Rescue Squad requested donations of toys, food and cash to help them get resettled. The community outpouring was so generous, there were extra toys which were given to low-income children throughout the community. And a tradition was born!
