Parishioner at local church happy with how recent firefighters toy drive turned out

Re:  Article in 12/20/23 Edition by Ron Giofu, titled Amherstburg Firefighters Association cap successful “Stuff a Fire truck” toy drive


I’d like to comment on this excellent article and exposure given during this past Christmas season.

The church where I attend, annually has what they call “A White Gift Sunday” where parishioners bring  either toys, adolescent gifts, or gift cards.  

We later give them to our “Amherstburg Firefighters Association” who then bestow all these gifts gathered in their toy drive, to needed individuals in the area.  

This year, I want to mention the firefighters Ericka Nolan, Mackenzie Bailey, and Cameron Arksey who took time out of their schedule to come to my church and show us their expression of appreciation.  President Arksey spoke very eloquently of what this all means.

As quoted from Psalms 127:3

 “Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from Him.”

Thank you so much for your caring compassion, and  showing me what really encompasses  the true meaning of Christmas.

God Bless
