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 approximately 100 less-fortunate families in Noblesville.
2021 marks the 44th anniversary since the program started. The fire department has partnered with Kroger for food needs and Meijer for toys.
The fire department is accepting canned goods, non-perishable food items and new, unwrapped toys through Friday, Dec. 3. Donations may be dropped off at any of the Noblesville Fire Stations or at Noblesville City Hall, 16 S. 10th St. Deliveries to the families will take place on Saturday, Dec. 11.
The fire department also is accepting monetary donations (checks are preferred – made payable to the NFD Hamilton County Community Foundation). Secure online donations may be made through the Central Indiana Community Foundation donor portal at www.cicf.org/giving/give-now/existing-fund/. If making an online donation, please type in “Noblesville Firefighters Fund” under the Fund Name section.
