Lakeside Firefighters "Adopt-a-Family"

Lakeside: For the tenth year, the Lakeside Firefighters collected money in support of a local family in need. The firefighters started this program when there appeared to be a need here in the community of Lakeside. The firefighters receive referrals from the school district, and local churches.

Firefighter Shawn McKenna and Fire Enginner Chris Downing load gifts for delivery to the "adopt-a-family".
In November, the Lakeside Firefighters collected money from within their group in support of this worthy cause. This year we were able to provide Christmas decorations, and gifts for nine children. The event is coordinated by Fire Engineer Chris Downing and Firefighter-Paramedic Jose Corona.
