The Lombard Fire Department held its annual toy drive and parade on Saturday, Dec. 11. A caravan of fire department vehicles traveled south on Main Street from St. Charles Road to Glenbard East High School to pick up donations of toys and baby supplies. The fire department’s toy drive began collecting items on Nov. 1. Generous donors dropped off items at several collection boxes at several locations in Lombard, including both of the village’s fire stations. Donations from the drive will directly benefit the Lombard/Villa Park Food Pantry, Outreach House and Teen Parent Connection. One photo (above) from the toy drive/parade shows Matt and Tracy Nelson—owners of Rosemary and Jeans restaurant at 116 S. Main Street—with their son Luke. The Nelsons are pictured shortly before making their donation to the fire department’s drive. Another photo (below) from along the parade route shows (left to right) three young Lombard residents—Ryan Magee, Alexander Jonsson and Michael Jonsson—waiting to make their donation. The bottom photo shows the caravan, which included a special guest, arriving to pick up the donation from the three boys.
