Grand Rapids residents need to be on the lookout for a phone scam during the holiday season.

The Grand Rapids Fire Department posted on their Facebook page last week that the scammer(s) is posing as a member or someone associated with the GRFD and asking for donations from people. Grand Rapids Fire Chief said in a statement that they nor the Fireghters Union are involved in anything of this sort.

But if you do want to help out in a legit and safe way, the GRFD has partnered with the Marine Corps Reserve in support of "Toys for Tots." All 11 of the fire departments in the city serve as drop-off locations.
