The Wheaton & Kensington Chamber of Commerce and the Wheaton Volunteer Rescue Squad are collecting toys for children who otherwise might not receive any this holiday season. The Angels for Children Toy Drive, which is in its 14th year, will officially launch Wednesday evening at the chamber's holiday mixer at The Limerick Pub in Wheaton. The toy drive organizers are asking for gifts, money, and gift wrap (paper and tape). Here is a list of the toy donation drop-off box locations: For more information on how to donate money, see the Wheaton & Kensington Chamber of Commerce website.
The Wheaton & Kensington Chamber of Commerce is running its Holiday on Duty program again this year.
It may be a holiday for you and your family this Thursday (unless you work at Target), but many police, firefighters and other public safety personnel stay on duty--ready to respond to emergencies in Wheaton and Kensington. For more than a decade, the Wheaton & Kensington Chamber of Commerce has provided meals to emergency responders on holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas. This Thursday, food will go to Montgomery County police, the Kensington Volunteer Fire Department and the Wheaton Volunteer Rescue Squad. If you would like to help or donate to the Holiday on Duty program, you can find out more information on the Wheaton & Kensington Chamber of Commerce's website.
