The Burien/Normandy Park Fire Department is holding its annual Holiday Outreach program, which will serve holiday food, toys and gifts to 50 local families, and here’s how YOU can help! Donations of food, toys or gifts (and more) are being accepted at the Burien Fire Station (900 SW 146th Street), North Highline Fire Stations (1243 SW 112th & 1606 S. 128th) and other local drop-off locations (full list below). All donations will go directly to needy families in the area. We’ve covered this great program before, and here’s a snippet from a prevous story by Michael Brunk:

Organized by firefighter Capt. George Stoess, 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.
