Chester’s Elves are proud to be working again with the Depoe Bay Fire District to help out families in need this Christmas season.
For the past four years, Chester’s Elves have assisted in the Christmas outreach with the fire department and the coordinators. Last year, after being a big part of the program for many years, volunteer Bree Boaz stepped away and passed the torch to Dylan Smith. Smith and Chester’s, along with the Depoe Bay Fire District, are looking forward to another successful year and positively impacting our community.
Organizers said many vendors are to be thanked for their cash and or gift contributions this year and in years past: Depoe Bay Liquor Store, the International Association of Firefighters Local 5154 Depoe Bay, Pirate Coffee, Tidal Raves, Coronado Shores Homeowners, C&S Warehouse, Charlie’s Produce, Franz Bakery, Umpqua Dairy, Bigfoot Distributing and Columbia Distributing.
Toys and donations can be dropped off at Chester’s Market in Lincoln Beach and at the Depoe Bay Fire Station. For more locations, check the Depoe Bay Fire website (www.depoebayfire.com).
The holiday basket applications can also be found on the Depoe Bay Fire District website and can be turned in to Chester’s in Lincoln Beach, Taft 7-12 School and Taft Elementary (Attn: Sandie Tucker) or at the Depoe Bay Fire District at the Depoe Bay Fire Station 21 located at 325 SW Hwy 101. Applicants must live in the Depoe Bay Fire District boundaries to participate in this program.
