Every year, Torrington Firefighters Local 1567 appeals to the public to support its Christmas for Children toy drive. “We always tell people, ‘Come help us and be part of something good,” said firefighter Brian Parks, who coordinates the drive along with firefighter Elliot Bickford. On Tuesday, Parks said people weren’t dropping off as many donations at the firehouse as they usually do. “But it’s a little early yet,” he said. “I think we’re lacking in terms of toys, but the good thing is, we have a lot of businesses and groups on board, and the way the dates fall on the weekends, we should be able to have enough.”
