Fremont Fire Department Holiday Food and Toy Drive
Submitted By Pam Franklin
As an annual tradition, the Fremont Fire Department is beginning its Holiday Food and Toy Drive for 2009. Each holiday season, the Fremont Fire Department accepts donations of non-perishable food and new, unwrapped toys at all 10 Fire Stations, and the Fire Administrative Office. Tri-City Volunteers, Inc. distributes the received donations to needy families in the Tri-City area. This process is assisted by the efforts of Fremont Fire Department volunteers. These donations help local families to share in the spirit of the holidays.
While these donations are important during the holiday season, the need for food and monetary donations to assist Tri-City Volunteers in their mission of helping the needy is ongoing throughout the year. Support from government agencies has decreased due to the current Bay Area economic downturn. All community members are encouraged to do what they can to assist the less fortunate. Despite these economic challenges the donation drive has continued to have great support from our generous community.
We will begin collecting donations on Friday, November 27, and this drive will end on Wednesday, December 23
