The Northwest Firefighters Charities local #3572 will be holding their annual Holiday food and toy drive at the Buckelew Farms Christmas Tree lot located on the Southwest corner of Ina and La Cholla.

The event it Saturday, Dec. 14 where firefighters will be collecting food, new unwrapped toys, and winter clothing.

Cash donations will be accepted via a “fill-the-boot” style donation as well.

Families are encouraged to come out and meet the fire fighters. Bring a camera to take pictures by the fire truck.

Santa Claus will be at the location from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. to assist firefighters with their efforts.

Last year Firefighters were able to help 290 families with food and toys. Out of those families, 679 kids received presents that they would not have received without this drive.

The event starts at 9 a.m. and lasts until 6 p.m.
