The brigade — composed of Boy Scout Explorer Post 1003, Santa Claus and firefighters — traveled the roads of Sequim on Dec. 10-13 collecting donations of food and toys, said Patrick Young, fire department spokesman.
In addition to food, the delivery to the food bank included $320, Young said.
This is the fifth year that Santa’s Fire Brigade has traveled in an antique fire engine collecting food, toys and monetary donations.
