Firefighters throughout Iron County will be collecting toys and other gifts for area children in need on Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon. The collection effort is part of the Iron County Firefighters Association’s Christmas is for Kids campaign.

“Years ago the fire association (Iron County) was looking for a way to give back to the kids and to needy families in the area,” said Stacy Ofstad, treasurer of the association. “We know that when kids lose everything that it’s devastating. So it’s just our way of giving back to the community.”
