Redmond fire fighters hold Food & Toy Drive

The Redmond Firefighters are once again collecting nonperishable food and toys for local food banks this holiday season, during the month of December.
   In addition, the Redmond Firefighters Union will once again be matching cash donations up to a total compensation of no more than $500.
   For the past 20 years, the Redmond firefighters have collected donations for the needy on the Eastside and the items that they collect help brighten the lives of many families during the holiday season.
   All donations can be dropped off at any of the fire stations in the city of Redmond and King County Fire District #34.
   This year, you may also drop off items at the Redmond Police/Fire Substation at Redmond Town Center from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
   For locations or directions to the station nearest you, call (425) 556-2200 during normal business hours.
   If you have any questions, call Loren Charlston at (425) 556-2205.
