This year is our 22nd year of our Santa teams delivering gifts, smiles and fun to hundreds of families in Orange every year since the very beginning. Santa’s Helper is a wonderful, memorable fundraising event with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting your Orange Volunteer Fire Department for the purchase of firefighting and rescue equipment.
Every Santa’s Helper teams of Santa, Elves, and firefighter helpers are honored and excited to visit and deliver gifts, share in some fun, take photos and help make lasting memories and traditions for every family. Children and adults alike, look forward with great anticipation to seeing the fire trucks with lights and sirens coming down their street to your front door, with Santa on board, leading the way ˗ his truck full of gifts, his firefighter helpers and Elf visiting each family.
We want everyone to have a chance to join in the fun and it’s easy! Drop off the gifts on the designated drop off day that you want Santa to deliver back to your loved ones, sign up and we’ll do the rest!
PLEASE FOLLOW THE SIMPLE GUIDELINES BELOW:

On Saturday, December 17, 2016, SANTA ON HIS FIRE TRUCK with his Elf and firefighter helpers will arrive at your home to deliver the gifts back to your loved ones and will spend some time with your family and friends for photos and fun.
If you have any questions, you can EMAIL ELF MAMA at: email@example.com. She will be happy to help you via email or visit: orangevfd.com for additional information. Please do not call the Fire Stations as it’s a volunteer fire department and there will not be anyone there to assist you with Santa’s Helper information.
**Emailing Santa’s Helper does not guarantee you a spot on the delivery route. Sign-up is on gift drop off day on a first come – first serve basis.
