Foxwall EMS got a huge hand in its collection for Toys for Tots when 400 dolls, trucks and other items were delivered on Nov. 30 to the station along Squaw Run Road in Fox Chapel.

Employees from the insurance brokerage firm HUB International donated toys collected during its November campaign, giving Foxwall a significant boost, Commander Josh Worth said.

“To us, public service is more than just transporting the sick and injured,” Worth said. “It’s about helping people when they need it most and our members are amazing at doing that.”

Toys for Tots is a 70-year-old national charitable program run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, with the aim of providing help and happiness to less fortunate children during the holiday season. Toys, books and other gifts collected will be distributed by Marines and volunteers to local families, including many from the Lower Valley.

Anyone interested in donating can do so through 4 p.m. Dec. 13 at 145 Squaw Run Road. For more, visit foxwall.org .

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
