Normally the sight and sounds of fire department vehicles mean bad news, but showing up before Christmas meant Santa Claus was on the way.
Members of the Deale Volunteer Fire Department extended its reach to 3 local families to have a Merry Christmas this year.
The Department presented the families with several gifts before Christmas to help out.
Families were chosen from Guidance Counselors from the local schools, Shady Side Elementary and Deale Elementary.
Children received various items from clothes, toys, puzzles, games, and gift cards.
Responses from Family’s / Guidance Counselors
“Thank you for organizing this special Christmas surprise. I know that the family was incredibly appreciative and you all created an incredibly memorable Christmas for the entire family.”
“Thank you so much. My kids are in shock! Even though they are quiet children, their silence shocked even me! I appreciate everything that the Deale Fire Dept has done for my family.”
