Santa’s annual visit to the White Rock fire hall resulted in $2,500 raised for the firefighters’ charity association.

The event, held Dec. 7 at the 15315 Pacific Ave. hall, featured pancakes cooked up by the Local 2407 crew, photos with the Jolly Old Elf and a chance to win a child-sized, pedal-powered fire truck.

In addition to cash, the firefighters also collected donations of new, unopened toys – a cache that increased by more than 200 on Dec. 11, when Peace Arch Hospital employees donated their toy-drive efforts to the cause.

The gifts were delivered to Sources Community Resource Centre for distribution.

Next up for the firefighters is their annual charity tree-chip.

The by-donation tradition is set for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 5 in the Centennial Arena parking lot, 14600 North Bluff Rd. Hotdogs and refreshments will also be available.
