Stanislaus County firefighters consolidate for a cause

Stanislaus Consolidated Fire Department volunteers assembled 750 boxes of food and toys for 250 needy families Saturday. Each family received three boxes, including a turkey or roast and fixings for Christmas dinner. The boxes were a welcome surprise for Chris. “We’re very happy. It’s very random,” he said. “We didn’t expect this at all and it will help out with food.” For more information, click on the photos and watch the video.
