Every December we decorate our Reserve Engine, load Santa and a few additional Volunteers, and head out into the Community to collect unwrapped Holiday Gifts for children up to the age of 14.  Unopened presents can be brought out to Santa as he passes by, or dropped off at either Cabin John Park VFD Fire Station. The toy drive supports the National Center for Children and Families in Bethesda and the Scotland Drive Community Association in conjunction with Montgomery County Police. The week before Christmas our Volunteers begin wrapping and labeling all of the gifts and on Christmas Eve they are delivered to children who otherwise may not have a joyous Holiday.  The expected schedule is posted below:
