The Maricopa Fire Department’s Ride for Toys is Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Pacana Park.
Santa Claus will be on a motorcycle leading the fire trucks. There will also be a snowy playground (five tons!) and a chance to meet Sparky the Fire Dog.
This is a drive for toys and nonperishable food for the holidays.
Donate a new, unwrapped toy or a teen gift and get a free ride on a fire truck. Each gift also earns a raffle ticket for a chance to win a dinner with a fire crew, a ride to school on a fire truck or a fire department T-shirt.
Donations benefit F.O.R. Maricopa food bank and Maricopa children.
