Marysville firefighters join Santa in collecting for Food Bank Dec. 9-11

MARYSVILLE — Firefighters from the Marysville Fire District Local 3219 will again team up with Santa Claus from 4-7 p.m. on Dec. 9-11 at the Marysville Safeway, located at 1258 State Ave., to help make the holidays a bit brighter for the Marysville Community Food Bank.

The Marysville firefighters’ annual holiday food drive is returning to its old stomping grounds at the front entrance of the Safeway because the community’s needs remain pressing, according to Tom Maloney, Division Chief and Fire Marshal of the Marysville Fire District

“During this time of year, the Marysville Community Food Bank relies even more than usual on the community’s spirit of giving, to ensure that families in need can celebrate the holidays too,” Maloney said. “Without your generous support, those families will not be able to share in the joy of this season.”

Not only will the Marysville firefighters and Santa gladly accept donations of food, cash or unwrapped toys, but Santa will be handing out candy canes to good boys and girls of all ages in return.

In the meantime, Marysville firefighters will also be collecting for the Marysville Community Food Bank by walking the Electric Lights Parade route during “Merrysville for the Holidays” on Dec. 7.
