Tacoma Firefighters raise $10,000 to brighten the holidays for 110 local families - 2017

For the past 29 years, Tacoma Firefighters have brought holiday cheer to the lives of thousands of Tacoma children and their families with deliveries of food, clothing, and gifts just before Christmas. This year, firefighters have raised over $10,000 dollars to help more than 110 children and families in need.

“It’s always a great honor to help bring a little happiness to those in need during the holidays,” said Tacoma Firefighter Dinean Stayk. "We are also very grateful for the generous support from active and retired Tacoma Firefighters throughout the years. Without their commitment to the community and this program, none of this would have been possible," said Stayk.

Special deliveries from a fire engine, medic unit, and Santa Claus are December 19 and December 21. This year’s recipients are from the Tacoma School District Head Start Program and YWCA Women’s Shelter.

For additional information, contact Firefighter Stayk at (253) 370-9910.
