The New Melle Fire Protection District would like to thank everyone for their support through this holiday season. Pictures with Santa was a giant success this year, with over 115 kids who visited with Santa.
Over $300 in monetary donations along with multiple boxes of food and household items were donated to the New Melle Food Pantry.
Toys for Tots was also a big success. The entire Toys for Tots box was full when it was picked up from Dollar General and a bike and helmet were also delivered to the firehouse by a local family. This was our second year participating in Toys for Tots, and we will be doing it again next year.
The paid firefighters along with the ladies auxiliary teamed up and adopted a local family this year. This is our third year adopting a family provided to us through Daniel Boone Elementary. We provided close to $1,000 in gifts and household items for this family. All the money used was from the firefighters and auxiliary members, no tax dollars were used to fund this.
We would also like to thank everyone who dropped of baked goods to the firehouse. We appreciate the community’s support and wish everyone a safe and happy New Year.
