On behalf of the officers and members of the Havre de Grace Ambulance Corps, I would like to thank everyone who contributed to our fourth annual Toys for Tots campaign this year.

Our goal this year was to fill, from front to back, both of our Medic Units with new, unwrapped toys. We were able to fulfill this goal for the U.S. Marine Corps' Toys for Tots Foundation so that hundreds of boys and girls could wake up on Christmas morning and have a brand new toy under their Christmas tree. We received everything from video games and super hero figures to bicycles and baseballs. We could not have done this if it weren't for the generosity and kindness of our great community.  Thank you so much for buying that extra toy while out Christmas shopping and dropping it off at our station. Some of you even brought bags and car trunks full of toys.  We live in a very special community of caring people. 

We would also like to thank the media, especially The Record and The Aegis newspapers and the Havre de Grace "Patch" for advertising our toy drive this year. As you start shopping for Christmas 2012 please remember to pick up an extra toy for Toys for Tots.  We will be back next year and our goal will again be to fill our Medic Units with new toys.

Again, thank you for making our toy drive a huge success this year.
