Holiday Food and Toy Drive
Submitted By Capt. Steven Silva
The Fremont Fire Department is beginning its Holiday Food and Toy Drive. 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 at 3300 Capitol Avenue, Building A.
Tri-City Volunteers, Inc., who distributes the donations, has provided essential support to Tri-City low-income earners for over 40 years. Last year over 6,000 Holiday food carts and 7,000 Christmas toys were provided to local struggling families.
All community members are encouraged to do what they can to assist and despite current economic challenges the donation drive has continued to have great support. Please note that we will begin collecting donations on Friday, November 23rd, and the drive will end on Tuesday, December 18, 2012, earlier than usual. Tri-City is hosting a large Christmas party on December 15 and it is hoped that most donations will be in before that time.
Thank you for your support!
