Gladstone firefighters to deliver 120 holiday boxes
Gladstone residents have collected and distributed food and toy for more than the past 20 holiday seasons, with generous support from businesses, service clubs, private donations and the Gladstone School District.
Due to COVID-19 conditions, firefighters are conducting their holiday drive a little differently this year, but 120 families will still get food and toys for Christmas.
You can donate money toward the purchase of toys and gift cards for families in need before Dec. 14 at gofundme.com/f/holiday-food-and-toy-drive. Gladstone Fire will pick up food boxes at the Sunshine Division on Dec. 15 and distribute them Dec. 17-18.
Gladstone's Senior Center will serve as the distribution point for the program this year.
