The Grand Junction Fire Department in conjunction with the Grand Junction Firefighters Association raised over $12,000 dollars this year for Toys for Tots. This is a record-breaking year on every level. The Grand Junction/Mesa County community is a huge part of the success of this program and we want to make sure that you know how much we appreciate your support. Final total donated to Toys for Tots was $12,026.68.  These funds came from the communities support of the GJFD Association’s Annual Golf Tournament ($4,000), GJFD Turkey Trot ($3526.68), and donations we receive from both GJ Wal-Mart stores ($2500 -North Ave and $2000 Rimrock). The firefighters and their families spent the morning shopping at Rimrock Wal-Mart loading cart after cart full of toys for boys and girls. They then loaded over 5 truckloads of toys and transported the toys to the Toys for Tots location. Happy holidays from everyone here at the Grand Junction Fire Department.
