White Hills Voluntary Fire Company No. 5 of Shelton would like to publicly thank neighborhood residents for their support during the recent Santa tour to collect toys for the needy.

“To our friends and neighbors in the White Hills of Shelton, your generosity was overwhelming during Santa’s ride through The Hill,” organizers said.

“On nearly every street in the White Hills, there was someone waiting with a toy to share with less fortunate families,” they said. “With everyone’s help, we were able to collect over two full pickup truck loads of toys.”

Santa, assisted by a few elves, rode on top of a fire truck through the White Hills. The annual event is made in conjunction with the fire company’s Toys for Tots drive. All toy donations are given to the TEAM Inc. Toys 4 Kids effort.

“We hope that you and your families have a safe and joy filled holiday season,” said White Hills Fire members.
