Firefighters and Santa Run Around Town to Collect Food

December 17, 2012

Santa might come to your house with a different kind of sleigh this year.

He is teaming up with local firefighters to collect food for those in need. It's part of the Seminole Trail Volunteer Fire Department's annual Santa Run.
They will give the donated food to local food banks.

"It's the Santa Run! So we're running around, lights and sirens around the neighborhoods just to let everyone know we are coming," said Robert Knight, a firefighter with Seminole Trial. "And we just hook Santa up on the apparatus and he waves to all the kids and we give out candy canes and all that good stuff."

Here is where Santa will be stopping by:
-Dec. 17- Still Meadows, Forest Lake S., Four Seasons, Minor Ridge, Stonehenge
-Dec. 18- Abbington Crossing, Northfields, Carrsbrook, Montgomery Ridge
-Dec. 19- Turnberry Circle, Berkley, Albert Court, Parks Edge, Hollymead
-Dec. 20- Huntington Road, Belvedere, Dunlora, Pen Park, Turtle Creek
-Dec. 21- Albemarle Square, Woodbrook, Rain Tree, Autumn Hill, Berkshire Apts.
