Our Santa Teams at the Orange Volunteer Fire Department are busy getting ready for our 23rd year of delivering gifts, smiles, and fun to hundreds of families in Orange once again this year. As many of you know, Santa’s Helper is a wonderful, exciting and fun-filled memorable fund-raising event with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting your Orange Volunteer Fire Department for the purchase of firefighting and rescue equipment.
Each year, every one of our 6 Santa’s Helper Teams of Santa, Elves and firefighter helpers are excited and honored to visit and deliver gifts, share in some fun, take photos and help make lasting memories and traditions for every family. Children and adults alike look forward with great anticipation to seeing the fire trucks with lights and sirens coming down their street to their front door, with Santa leading the way! His truck full of gifts, his helpers and Elves visiting with each family.
This year, for everyone’s convenience, the Santa visits are on a Saturday (instead of Sunday) again — so mark your calendars for December 16.
WE WANT EVERYONE TO JOIN IN THE FUN, IT’S EASY!
