Food Drive

Donations accepted through Thursday, December 20. - The Elkridge Volunteer Fire Department is sponsoring its 28th Annual Holiday Food Drive, to benefit needy families in the Elkridge area. The Holiday Food Drive started in 1991, filling dozens of baskets each year, and has provided over 750 food baskets for needy families over the years. - The community response to this food drive is always great. Our annual collection of canned and non-perishable goods for the Holiday Food Baskets are collected during the annual, Santa riding the fire engine through the Elkridge communities. Turkeys, pies and other food items are purchased through monetary donations. In addition, wrapped gifts for children are also collected. - The success of this program is only realized by the generosity of the Elkridge community. - We are again asking you to help by donating food and or money in the form of cash or check (tax deductible) made out to the Elkridge Volunteer Fire Department, in care of Christmas Food Drive.

Here Comes Santa !!!!!! Select Read More For His Schedule

It’s that time of the year and once again we’ll be bringing Santa to visit the children of Elkridge. As our area grows we are challenged to continue our door to door stops, so where possible we have added a central Santa Stop. So, when you hear the familiar sound of the air horns and Christmas music in the distance, please gather where you hear the Christmas music with your neighbors at the Santa Stop and we’ll be there shortly. In areas where a central spot isn’t practical we’ll drive through making stops but please gather in groups so that it’s safer for everyone.  We hope to end the evening runs by 9:00pm. Please look at the schedule and see when we’re coming to your neighborhood. When possible the brush truck will ride ahead to give everyone time to get ready. We will also have a Santa Tracker on our website at www.elkridgevfd.org  and Facebook page. Again, this year we will be collecting non-perishable food for our food baskets and the Elkridge food pantry.  Of course, you can come see Santa at the station at our 'Holly Jolly Food Truck Festival', on Sunday, December 16, from 11am-3pm. If you have a child with special needs, please let us know and we'll try and work with you to make it easier for your child to see Santa. if you have any other questions, please email ElkridgeSanta@gmail.com Please check back for updates.
