Celebrate the season of giving with your local firefighters! This December, Bothell firefighters will be collecting food and toy donations to help families in need during the holidays.

The Santa Drive will kick off at the annual Tree Lighting Festival taking place December 1st in downtown Bothell. Throughout the month, firefighters will also be driving the engine around local neighborhoods to collect much-needed items. Dates, times and details are listed below.

All items collected will be given to Hopelink for distribution. Donations can also be dropped off at our Downtown Fire Station located at 10726 Beardslee Blvd.
