The Noblesville Fire Department is seeking assistance from the community to ensure local families have a joyous holiday season. The fire department is currently accepting donations for its annual food and toy drive to benefit 120 less-fortunate families in Noblesville.
2018 marks the 41st anniversary since the program started. The fire department has partnered with Kroger for food needs and Meijer for toys.
The fire department will be accepting canned goods, non-perishable food items, monetary donations (checks are preferred – made payable to the Noblesville Fire Department Legacy Fund), and new, unwrapped toys from Monday, Nov. 5 through Monday, Dec. 10. Donations may be dropped off at any of the Noblesville Fire Stations or at Noblesville City Hall, 16 South 10th Street. Deliveries to the families will take place on Saturday, Dec. 15.
“For four decades, the Noblesville Fire Department has had the honor of delivering food and toys on behalf of the generous citizens and businesses of Noblesville, who willingly donate to this great cause,” said Noblesville Fire Chief Greg Wyant. “The gratitude displayed by the recipients of these gifts is impossible to describe.”
The fire department wishes to thank the outstanding businesses and individuals in the community who have given generously to the food and toy drive campaign each year. Without your generosity, many families and children would go without during the holiday season.
