Members of the Stamford Professional Firefighters Association (SPFA) helped Santa collect, wrap and deliver hundreds of gifts to children who were at the Franklin Street Shelter, the Salvation Army, the Wilson Food Pantry, the Stamford Hospital as Pediatric patients and other selected locations.
Fire Fighter Donald Lowndes, the organizer of the Stamford Fire Fighters’ toy drive, said, “It’s a sad reality that hundreds of families in Stamford lack the ability to buy basic necessities this time of year, let alone toys for their kids during the holidays. Once again this year we are hoping to make a difference for over 1,000 children across Stamford and to spread a contagious holiday spirit all across our city.”
“Numerous Stamford families struggle with the burden of finances. The holiday season can cause additional stress and hardships,” said Brendan Keatley, president of the Stamford Professional Fire Fighters Association. “Our fire fighters are looking forward to helping our neighbors and spreading some true holiday joy this year.”
GREAT JOB GUYS!
