Marysville firefighters help those in need: Marysville Firefighters and Santa plan to gather food again this year for the Marysville Community Food Bank. They will be at Safeway, 1258 State Ave. 3 to 7 p.m. on Dec. 5, 6, and 7.

Santa will be there with candy canes for the kids (and adults too)!

Firefighters and Santa will gladly accept your donation of food, unwrapped toys or cash donations.

During this time of year the Marysville Community Food Bank relies even more so on the community’s spirit of giving to ensure that families can celebrate the holiday season. Without your generous support these families will not be able to have a joyous holiday season.
