Ferndale area firefighters say they will be doing a very unique food drive for the first time this year. They will be coming to Ferndale neighborhoods to collect non-perishable food items for the Ferndale Food Bank and they will be accompanied by Santa.
Whatcom County Fire District 7 firefighters, along with Santa, will be arriving in Ferndale area neighborhoods with decorated antique firetrucks to hand out candy canes and wish neighbors a merry Christmas. They will also be accepting donations of non-perishable items for the Ferndale Food Bank.
