Thornhill Firefighters Spread the Joy of Christmas
Annual Christmas Carol sing provides donations for Henny's Sharing Tree
As they have since 1982, members of the Thornhill Fire Department once again brought the spirit of Christmas to the areas they serve -- and also made sure that spirit continues on throughout the season.
The volunteer fire fighters once again held their annual Carol-sing through Thornhill, Queensway, Gitaus, Jackpine Flats, Kleanza and other areas -- and also collected donations for the needy -- and yesterday Fire Chief Wes Patterson delivered those packages to Henny's Sharing Tree here at our studios... he said the campaign seemed to be a good fit.
"The last couple of years we've collected food for the food bank, knowing there's a need out there. It was an easy way for people to come out to the end of the driveway, we would deliver it... and we collected a good pickup full of food so estimations are 800 pounds of food"
Donations to Henny's Sharing Tree are distributed to needy families in the Terrace area by the Salvation Army.
