Clark County Fire District 3 is collecting gift cards and cash donations for area families in need. Cash donations will be used to purchase gift cards.
“This annual event is one that our ‘fire family’ looks forward to volunteering at each year,” said Fire Chief Scott Sorenson. “We’re so thankful for our community’s support and appreciate the opportunity to do something positive to help those in need this holiday season.”
In previous years, Fire District 3 would collect toys and deliver them to families in need before the holidays. This year, to be able to provide gifts safely, and reduce risks for volunteers as well, Fire District 3 is collecting gift cards to distribute to families.
Gift cards can be dropped off at Station 31 in Hockinson (17718 NE 159th St., Brush Prairie, WA 98606) and Station 35 in Battle Ground (505 SW 1st St., Battle Ground, WA 98604). Cards can also be mailed to Fire District 3 at Station 31.
Please have your gift cards or cash donations to the Fire District by December 15 to give families time to shop. Cash donations can be made through GoFundMe at gf.me/u/y862d8.
If you would like to sign up children to receive gifts, please contact your child’s school counselor throughout Fire District 3’s services area, including Battle Ground.
“This has been a difficult year for many,” said Chief Sorenson. “We hope that it can be made a little brighter for some local kids with help from our community.”
