Morrisville, VT – The Vermont State Police, City of Burlington Fire Department, and the Morristown Police Department are teaming up to form “Operation Fire Cuff”. This is a joint effort to collect toys for the children at the Vermont Children’s Hospital located at Fletcher Allen Health Care.

This event is in its second year, which will hopefully carry on for years to come. Last year’s event was a huge success, and this year’s goal is to collect even more toys.

Operation Fire Cuff will be held on December 14th, 2012 at 1:00PM; when presents will be delivered to the Vermont Children’s Hospital by members of the Vermont State Police, the Burlington Fire Department, and Morristown Police, accompanied by Santa.
