It's a yearly tradition in Castlegar as the volunteers and professionals in the fire department take on toy duty.

This year they did a four-hour stint at the A&W, accepting donations of toys as well as taking turns helping out the restaurant crew.

Mountain Transport Institute was part of the effort with a donated bus on hand to move the collected toys around and get them ready for later distribution.
