TRUSSVILLE — Trussville Fire & Rescue plans to once again put smiles on faces of children in need. With the annual Christmas for Kids program, members of the fire department will ensure children of families in need will have gifts this year.
Fire Chief Tim Shotts said without the public’s assistance, the program would not be possible.
“Our program is designed to help needy families, within the Trussville community, provide Christmas for their children, where otherwise there would be none,” Shotts said. “Like in previous years, we are asking for your help.”
If you would like to assist the Trussville Fire Department with Christmas for Kids, you can drop off a new, unwrapped toy at any Trussville Fire Station. You can also make tax-deductible, monetary donations by mailing a check to: Trussville Fire and Rescue, ATTN: Christmas for Kids Donations, 421 Cherokee Drive, Trussville, AL 35173.
Shotts said firefighters will use monetary donations to go shopping for kids on the Friday before Christmas.
Donations go directly to qualifying families in need within the Trussville community. Shotts said no portion of donations are reserved for administrative costs.
“Our workers volunteer their time and energy,” said Shotts.
Donations will be accepted through Christmas.
“On behalf of the Trussville Fire and Rescue and less fortunate within our community, thank you for your help,” Shotts added. “May you have a blessed holiday season.”
