Clallam County Fire District 3 brought in the goods this holiday season for the Sequim Food Bank and Sequim Community Aid.

The fire department’s Santa’s Toy & Food Fire Brigade went around the Sequim area four nights this past week in its 1939 Seagrave fire engine collecting food and toys.

The district delivered 1,280 pounds of food and $180 in cash for the food bank.

Enough toys were collected to hand out to more than 400 children.

Food and toys also were collected at the Fifth Avenue fire station.
