The department held a boot drive in October that raised they money they used to buy bikes and other toys this week.
This past week, the crew from the Muse Volunteer Fire Department went on its annual trip to the store to buy bikes and other kid-favorites for the annual Toys for Tots drive. The crew spent just more than $1,600 on the toys. This is the eighth year the department has participated in the program. And local folks can get involved, too. There will be a toy drive at the Muse fire station 9 a.m. until noon on Dec. 1. "If you want to participate, please bring a new toy valued at $5 or greater. Or, if you prefer, monetary donations will be accepted also. Santa Claus will be in attendance, so bring the kiddies," department safety officer Paul Smith said.

- HOLIDAY GUIDE
Saturday, December 24, 2011
The Meadows Racetrack & Casino announced the results of its Gifts for G.I.’s and Toys for Tots programs—both of which were a success. State Sen. Tim Solobay hosted a Gifts for G.I.’s campaign from Nov. 1—30 at The Meadows, which garnered more than 750 pounds of gifts. Those gifts were collected and shipped to U.S. troops overseas, including to the 5th Calvary stationed in Afghanistan. The Meadows, along with the Marine Corps Reserve of Washington County, also collected for its annual Toys for Tots campaign—with twelve oversized bins filled with toys collected. Those toys were distributed as Christmas gifts to needy children in the local community.

Members of the Muse Volunteer Fire Department hit the Washington Wal-Mart Thursday night to buy almost $1,500 worth of bikes and other kid swag—all to benefit Toys For Tots. The cash—raised at the department’s annual boot drive in October—and the toys bought with it will go a long way in the members' quest to fill a dump truck with kid-centric items. But they still need your help. The department invites the Canon-McMillan area to visit the station from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturday. Members ask that you donate an unwrapped toy with a value of at least $5. The hope is to fill the dump truck to the brim—something Muse VFD officials have successfully done for the past few years. Monetary donations will also be accepted. “We do it to give back …
