For the past week, Kensington Fire Safe has been collecting holiday treats for our firefighter heroes at our local Fire Station 18 in Normal Heights. Neighbors donated items that filled two overflowing baskets, and SOMEONE even donated some mistletoe! Kensington community businesses also stepped up to donate. Stehly Farms donated two large boxes of fresh produce. Clem’s Bottle House and Kensington Starbucks also donated items.

On December 13, 2021 Kensington Fire Safe board members dropped off these goodies to the grateful firefighters. We let them know how much we appreciate their service to our community, and it was really an honor chatting with these wonderful people. We can all rest assured we’re in good hands with these men ready to jump in in case of emergency.

A heartfelt thank you to all the people who generously donated items to the goody baskets, and a huge thank you to board member Vicki Pinkus for organizing this year’s holiday gift.
