Christmas morning will once again be bright for area children and teens thanks to our generous community. Each year, new toys, clothes and more from stocking hats and headphones to jewelry and cologne are donated to Glacial Ridge Ambulance’s Holiday Toy Drive. And the giving doesn’t stop there. When Glacial Ridge Ambulance crews were spending monetary donations from area supporters to fulfill kids’ wish lists, local stores contributed by giving discounts or additional gifts. Collecting toys and shopping for kids less fortunate is very rewarding and humbling for everyone involved.
417 children and teens from 156 families in the ambulance’s service area benefited from the donations distributed through Pope County Family Collaborative and the BBE School District.
To everyone who donated or reached out to area families in other ways, thank you from all of us at Glacial Ridge Ambulance. We wish you a bright Christmas as well.
