Monetary donations are used to purchase fresh fruits, vegetables, meat, milk, butter, eggs and bread.

This event takes place Satuday, December 1 beginning at 9:00 a.m.

Nonperishable food items include:

  • Canned soups
  • Beans
  • Vegetables
  • Fruits
  • Pastas
  • Grains
  • Oils
  • Cereal
  • Baking products

When you hear the sirens or see the fire trucks and our volunteers coming through your neighborhood, please bring your food items out to meet them curbside. You may also leave your donations curbside.

NOTE: If you do not want the sirens to sound on your street, please call your local fire department and every effort will be made to meet your request on the day of the food drive.

Food, Toys and monetary donations that are collected by firefighters and the Volunteers will be distributed here locally in their respective communities. Food collected in the Woodburn area will help to provide meals to over 150 families in need. This collection will be distributed through the St. Vincent De Paul Society. SVDP is a branch of the St. Luke's School here in Woodburn. SVDP works with the LOVE SANTA Inc. program to help with all the families that have signed up for assistance. The Woodburn Fire Department has been teamed up with the program for over 25 years now.

Other drop off locations for nonperishable food, toys and monetary donations include the Aurora Fire Station & Woodburn Fire District Headquarters Station.

Hubbard Love Santa has teamed up with the French Prairie Lions Club and several of these local businesses including Dollar General store in Hubbard, the White Rabbit in Aurora and the Donald Cafe. A new unwrapped gift can be dropped off at these businesses as well as Hubbard Chevrolet and Woodburn Les Schwab Tire Center. Remember, these will be distributed to local families.
