KPRC2 partners with the Houston Fire Department (HFD) each year for the Operation: Stocking Stuffer toy drive. The station helps solicit individual donations for a month leading up to Christmas and encourages local corporations to provide toys and bicycles for boys and girls in need. Since partnership with HFD began on this project nearly a decade ago it has grown exponentially, making the holidays a little brighter for local families who may not otherwise have been able to provide Christmas gifts for their children. KPRC2 helped generate excitement for this year’s toy drive with help from NBC’s Sunday Night Football bus, which visited Houston on December 12th to host a toy drop-off event and make a donation worth more than $5,000 in toys. In 2014, full bags of toys were provided for 3,200 families and in 2015, more than 4,400 families received bags of toys and gifts through KPRC2 and HFD’s Operation: Stocking Stuffer toy drive.
