As a part of the Burn Foundation’s three-week #OperationMakeKidsSmile Campaign, Fill the Fire Truck Toy Drive and firefighters, along with volunteers, are distributing gifts throughout the valley.

Among their first stops was the UMC burn unit on Saturday, Dec. 15, where they visited the unit's annual Christmas party with treats and a visit from Santa.

The toys were donated by firefighters of the Southern Nevada Burn Foundation and collected in partnership with Las Vegas Walmarts from Dec. 1 to Dec. 16.

The Burn Foundation’s campaign will end Sunday, Dec. 16, but donations are being accepted through Dec. 20 and can be dropped off at any fire station.

These remaining donations will be given to 13 schools across the valley during the week of Dec. 17.
