Burien/Normandy Park Fire Department Seeking Donations for Needy Families

The Burien/Normandy Park Fire Department is seeking donations to help local families in need this holiday season, and they’ve got several Christmas Outreach Drop-off locations.

Donations of food or toys are being accepted at the Burien Fire Station (15100 8th Ave SW), North Highline Fire Station (1243 SW 112th & 1606 S 128th) and other local drop-off locations through Dec. 18.

All donations will go directly to needy families in the area.

We’re covered this great program before, and here’s a snippet from a prevous story [1] by Michael Brunk [2]:

Organized by firefighter Lt. John Zilke, the fire department works with local businesses and the community to gather food, gifts and cash donations in the months leading up to Christmas. Names of needy families are provided by the Department of Social and Health Services.

The ultimate goal? To make sure that each family on the list has a complete turkey dinner with all the trimmings and gifts for the children in the family.

Here’s a selection of photos I shot throughout the day set to a little holiday music. It’s a pale imitation compared to actually participating in an experience like this, but I hope it contributes something to your own sense of the holiday spirit:
