Hey Kids! Santa Claus is coming to Elk River on Thursday, December 17. You can wave to Santa and see an awesome fire truck from the comfort of your own car. You can even drop off a letter to Santa. Join the fun during this joyful “Honking Holidays” event from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Elk River Senior Living Center (11124 183rd Circle NW).
The Elk River Fire Department (ERFD) and United Way’s Power of Kindness group are joining forces to bring you this special event. In return, they are simply asking for your help to support those in need in our community this holiday season. Please bring a donation to help them Fill a Fire Truck with gifts for local kids and/or restock the shelves at CAER Food Shelf with non-perishable food items.
All types of children’s gifts are welcome and appreciated for ERFD’s Fill a Fire Truck including: dolls, movies, cars, board games, sports equipment, and arts and crafts. Gift cards are useful to fill in the gaps among age groups where gifts are needed. Each year, ERFD sees the greatest need for items geared toward older youth and teens. Gift cards such as VISA, Amazon, or gas cards make great gifts in addition to toiletries, perfume/cologne, etc.
Please note: Cash and checks will not be accepted. Items should be new, unused and unwrapped.
