TRUSSVILLE — Councilman Alan Taylor and Trussville Council presented a check in the amount of $2,000.00 to the Trussville Fire Department’s Christmas for Kids program during the city’s regular council meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 23. The donations program is designed to help needy families within the Trussville community provide Christmas for their children, where otherwise there would be none.
Councilman Taylor shared that the donation was made generously by members of the community during First Baptist Church Trussville’s Community Thanksgiving Service held Sunday, Nov. 21.
Trussville Fire and Rescue ask that if you would like to help, please drop off a new, unwrapped toy at any Trussville Fire Station, or if you would like to make a monetary donation, simply mail your tax-deductible check to Trussville Fire and Rescue 421 Cherokee Drive Trussville, AL 35173 (Attn: Christmas For Kids Donations). All the donations go to qualifying, needy families within the community. Trussville Fire and Rescue donates their time and energy to make this program possible.
