Kannapolis Fire Department is a drop-off site for Toys for Tots. Bins will be available for those who would like to donate new toys and games to help local families during the holidays.
The Kannapolis Firefighters’ Assistance Foundation (KFAF) will host food sales during the event and will also sell KFAF Breast Cancer Awareness T-shirts.
