Santa sure knows how to bring out the support in Sequim.
In 2016, Santa’s Toy and Food Fire Brigade, a partnership between Clallam County Fire District 3, Explorer Post 1003 and IAFF Local 2933, collected about 1,200 pounds of food and $600 for the Sequim Food Bank.
For the effort’s eighth year, the groups along with Santa will ride in a decorated 1939 antique fire engine from 5-9 p.m. Dec. 5-8. Santa and his helpers will be handing out candy canes as they collect food for the Sequim Food Bank and toys and blankets for Sequim Community Aid’s Toys for Sequim Kids event on Dec. 13 at the Sequim Prairie Grange, 290 Macleay Road.
Dates and locations are as follows:
• Tuesday, Dec. 5, downtown Sequim west of Sequim Avenue
• Wednesday, Dec. 6, downtown Sequim east of Sequim Avenue
• Thursday, Dec. 7, Emerald Highlands and Elk Creek Apartments
• Friday, Dec. 8, Sunland and make-up day due to weather cancellations
