The Police and Fire Blue Christmas Food and Toy Drive returns for the holiday season with events starting Nov. 30 and running through December.

Those planning to donate items have two chances to drop them off at Walmart, 4100 W. Airport Freeway, on the following dates:

  • 5 to 9 p.m., Nov. 30.
  • 5 to 9 p.m., Dec. 10.

Volunteers are asking for new, unwrapped toys and nonperishable food items.

Two other events to remember:

  • Chili Cook-Off: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dec. 7 at Heritage Park, 217 S. Main St.
  • Pancake Breakfast: 8 to 11 a.m. Dec. 14 at Plymouth Park Baptist Church, 1714 N. Story Road.

Contestants can enter the Chili Cook-Off for $25, and chili enthusiasts can taste entries for $10. At the breakfast, plates of pancakes, bacon and sausage cost $10 for adults and $5 for ages 10 and younger. Both events will feature various family friendly attractions. Santa Claus will be making an appearance at both events.

Donations also can be made at any Irving Fire Station beginning Nov. 30 through Dec. 31.
