Operation Santa Claus

Santa's Fire Engine Parade will be in our neighborhood on Sunday December 9th!

The sleigh bells from Operation Santa Claus have been ringing for the citizens of Clackamas Fire District #1 since 1974. Click here for information on the fire districts website..

Firefighters recognized the need to provide toys and food baskets to families and individuals that were less fortunate, and not likely to experience the joys of the holiday season. Hence, Operation Santa Claus was formed.

Operation Santa Claus Is 100% Funded By Donations From Members Of The Community

During this month-long holiday toy and food drive, fire district volunteers and employees lead Santa’s fire engine parade down neighborhood streets to collect toys and non-perishable food items, which are used to fill hundreds of food baskets for needy families. Donated new toys bring a little extra Christmas cheer to children. Donated funds are used to purchase perishable items for food baskets, and help to cover miscellaneous expenses. Food collections barrels are set up at all Fire Stations.
