Snohomish Fire District 7 supports families for Christmas
December 23, 2010 · 11:20 AM
Firefighters with Snohomish County Fire District 7 helped support seven local families this holiday season.
Each of Fire District 7’s fire stations adopted one family in need, buying them holiday gifts they wouldn’t otherwise be able to give their children.
“It was a great feeling to be able to come together and give back to our community,” explained Lt. Joe Basta, who organized this year’s gift giving. “Although this isn’t the kind of crisis we respond to every day, we recognize that for many families there wouldn’t be gifts this year without help from others.”
IAFF Local 2781, which represents Fire District 7 firefighters, helped sponsor the gift giving.
Fire District 7 fire stations are also drop-off sites for the Maltby Food Bank. For a list of needed donations, please visit www.maltbyfoodbank.org or call 360-668-7900.
