Marion Fire Department to Assist with "Be a Santa to a Senior" Project
The Marion Fire Department will help make the holidays a little brighter for some area senior citizens on Thursday, Dec. 21 when they deliver Christmas gifts on behalf of Home Instead Senior Care’s “Be a Santa to a Senior” program.
Home Instead partners with local non-profit and community organizations to identify seniors who might not otherwise receive gifts during the holiday season. Members of the Marion Fire Department then sort and deliver the packages. This year there are nearly 100 deliveries on their list.
The deliveries will be made between 9-11 a.m. on Dec. 21. Members of the media are invited to attend but should contact Captain Shawn Fluharty before 5 p.m. on Dec. 20 at 319-377-8237 for delivery times/locations.
