This year, your Chuckatuck Volunteer Fire Department is doing something a little bit different this Christmas season - our first annual Santa Run!
Here's how it works: Parents (Grandparents, Guardians, Brothers, Sisters, etc. ) can drop off wrapped toys, marked with their child's name. The drop off dates are listed below. When the gifts are dropped off, the parent will fill out a contact information form - there will be one form for Saturday, and one form for Sunday (to be explained below). This form will include the parent and child's name, telephone number, address, and what the gift is.
After the last day of toy collection, Santa's routes will be made based on where the children live. Parents will be contacted to inform them of what time Santa will be coming around and dropping off the gifts to their good little boys and girls.
Then, just before Christmas, Santa Claus will come around on board one of our fire engines and drop off the gifts to each appropriate child.
The gift drop off days are as followed, and gifts can be dropped off at the fire station, 300 Kings Highway, Suffolk, Virginia:
- Monday 11/28 – 6pm-9pm
- Saturday 12/3 – 10am-2pm
- Sunday 12/4 – 10am – 2 pm
- Thursday 12/8 – 6pm-9pm
Santa will be around on the following days to drop off the gifts to the children:
- Saturday, December 17th – 1pm-5:30pm
- Sunday, December 18th – 1pm-5:30pm
At this time, we are only delivering gifts to residences in Chuckatuck :
– Route 10 corridor to the 4800 block of Godwin Boulevard and to Tan Road in Isle of Wight (including streets off of Route 10)
- Kings Highway corridor to the Kings Highway Bridge (including streets off of Kings Highway)
- Crittenden Road corridor to Hobson Drive (including streets off of Crittenden Rd)
- Everetts Road to Lake Prince and Milners Intersection (including streets off of Everetts)
- Longview Drive corridor to the Longview Bridge, and Suffolk City Line (including streets off of Longview)
- Woodland Drive to Carroll Bridge Road (including streets off of Woodland)
If the residence is outside of these areas, and the parents want to participate, they are more than welcome to come to the to be determined centralized location. That location will be communicated with them when contact is made to schedule times.
Please contact Lieutenant Chris Bailey with any questions, comments, or concerns:
