santaThe Echo Hose Hook and Ladder Company #1 will be donning Santa suits instead of turnout gear as we arrive with “lights and sirens” at your front door with Santa on board! The 8th Annual “Santa Helpers” Fundraiser is open to all Shelton residents and will take place Sunday December 14th – Sunday December 21st.

Parents please bring a small gift wrapped in brown paper with the child’s name and address clearly printed on the outside to “Santa Helpers” at 379 Coram Ave. Collections will be every Sunday starting on December 7th from 11am to 3pm and on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Collection of gifts will end on December 14th. You can also drop off gifts during our Festival of Trees event on Saturday December 6th at Apple Rehab at Shelton Lakes.

A donation of $10.00 per gift will be collected at time of drop-off at “Santa’s Helper”. Santa along with his helpers will then deliver the gifts between December 14th and the 21st between 5pm and 9pm. Scheduling is on a first come first serve basis.

For more information, please call the Firehouse at (203) 924-4200, Treasurer Max Aulet at (203) 589-3009, or stop by Fire Headquarters.
