To gather presents and food for less fortunate children.

Thanks to:

Costco and Publix at the Verandah Shops for food and drink donations!

More than 25 years ago, when Bayshore Fire Rescue was exclusively a volunteer fire department they saw a need within their community to help less fortunate families provide Christmas for their children. They would drive around the community with Santa on the fire truck delivering Christmas presents to the children.  In those days the efforts were focused on the area known as Seminole Campground as that was the area of greatest concentration of families in need. Today's efforts are focused on providing Christmas gifts for underprivileged children to open on Christmas and food gifts to help sustain the families.
