CHANDLER, AZ (CBS5) -

An upcoming Chandler-area toy drive stands to brighten the holiday for thousands of disadvantaged children.

The Chandler Fire Department is bringing its annual collection effort to Chandler Fashion Center on Dec. 14 from 2 to 8 p.m. 

People who donate a new, unwrapped toy will get a ride in a Chandler fire engine. An adult must accompany all children 6 years and younger.

Fire authorities request that donated toys not be battery operated.

The collection point is near the valet parking area outside of the food court on the south side of the mall.

Fire Department mascots will be at the mall, along with Sprinkler the Clown, and performances by the City of Chandler Holiday Carolers will entertain the crowd.

Chandler firefighters will deliver all donated toys to the Chandler CARE Center for disadvantaged children. These are youngsters who have been identified through the staff at each Chandler Unified School District elementary school.

Toy donations can also be dropped off in the lobby of the fire administration headquarters at 151 E. Boston St. through Dec. 13 or at any of our local Chandler fire stations.
