Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro planned to visit a drop-off location for the Milford Fire Department’s holiday Toys for Tots drive this week.

She will be joined by Lieutenant Jason Hall, one of the toy drive’s co-chairs.

New, unwrapped toys and books have been collected at all city firehouses since mid-November. Gifts will be distributed to city residents in need on Saturday, Dec. 21 at the Margaret Egan Center on Matthew Street. The program assists more than 300 city families annually.

In addition to Lieutenant Hall, other co-chairs are Lieutenant Brian Colwell, and firefighters Jack Geary and Mike Geanacopoulos. They are members of Local 944, International Association of Firefighters.
