Kyle, New York – Volunteer Firefighter
On December 3, 2018, in Sugar Loaf, New York, the Toys for Tots train came through. Seeing the joy on the faces of all the kids who waited to speak to Santa, and the amazing turnout was a beautiful sight to see. The local fire department, which I belong to, and other firefighters and volunteers loaded hundreds of toys onto the train. My day was brighter knowing a child's Christmas would be a little more special. The volunteers for the organization were so kind and caring that it would be hard not to smile. Not only did it make my day better, it made this Christmas season a little more special for me. As I am typing this, wearing my new Toys for Tots hat, it makes me feel like a better person knowing that I am supporting such a great cause, and I know I will for many years to come.
