BEND, OR -- The Bend Fire Department has launched their annual Santa’s Express food drive. The department decorates a fire engine and they walk and ride through pre-selected neighborhoods where residents come out and donate food, toys or clothing. Battalion Chief Dave Howe says, "If people want to donate items for the annual Santa’s Express drive they can do that at any Bend Fire Station where we have boxes for donations. In addition every Starbucks in town has a donation box for Santa's Express." Howe says the annual food, toy and clothing drive will run through Thursday night.
