The Viola Blythe Community Service Center, Newark, is a nonprofit, nonsectarian corporation organized to promote, support and advocate social and human services to any person who is in immediate need. This mission is accomplished by a variety of programs, including emergency food and clothing distribution, referrals to other agencies, special programs that address current community needs and holiday programs at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

The Firefighters hope to capture the "after Thanksgiving Day" shopping frenzy and collect hundreds of toys. Their antique fire apparatus will tour the mall area with Santa Claus on board collecting toys.
