Get Ready For Santa’s Helper 2018

Our Santa teams at the Orange Volunteer Fire Department are very busy getting ready for our 24th year of delivering gifts, smiles and fun to hundreds of families in Orange.  Santa is practicing his “HO HO HO” and his Elves and firefighter helpers are getting the Fire Trucks ready.  As many know, Santa’s Helper is an exciting, fun, and memorable fundraising event with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting your Orange Volunteer Fire Department for the purchase of firefighting and rescue equipment.

Each year every one of our 6 teams of Santa, Elf and Firefighter helpers are excited to visit and deliver gifts, take photos and share in the fun in making lasting memories and traditions for every family.  Children and adults alike look forward with excited anticipation to seeing the fire trucks with light and sirens coming down the street to their front door with Santa leading the way!  His truck full of gifts his Elves and helpers coming in to visit each family.
