Santa knows that the Basking Ridge Fire Company No. 1 and the Liberty Corner Fire Company are both all volunteer organizations responsible for raising the majority of their own funding — and he's willing to help out again this year with deliveries of gifts to local children that also will help benefit both fire companies.
In an effort to raise necessary funding, Santa Claus, along with local firefighters, will be delivering holiday gifts via a fire engine on Saturday, Dec. 21.
For a $50 per family donation, the Basking Ridge Fire Company or the Liberty Corner Fire Company will arrive with Santa Claus at your home to deliver a holiday gift (which you supply) to a lucky recipient, or recipients.
How does it work? You are asked to deliver a pre-wrapped gift for each child participating in your family along with your $50 donation to your respective fire company.
Residents can identify the fire company that serves their area by the Annual Fund Drive solicitation they receive in the mail each year.
Those protected by the Basking Ridge Fire Company No. 1 should deliver gifts to their station at 30 Washington Ave. in Basking Ridge from 7 to 9 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 9th or during those hours Monday, Dec. 16.
Those protected by the Liberty Corner Fire Company should deliver their gifts to that fire station at 95 Church St. in Liberty Corner Village from 10 a.m. to noon on Sunday, Dec. 15, or from 7 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 17.
Then on Saturday, December 21, Santa Claus will arrive at your home on a fire engine to deliver your gifts.
