Digby firefighter Jim Gaunce gathers groceries for a Christmas Daddies delivery

Every year, a half dozen Digby firefighters and members of their families volunteer to help out with the Christmas Daddies deliveries.

On the appointed day, they back their trucks up to the Digby Pines where a team of elves have filled boxes and wrapped presents and grouped the deliveries by geographical area.

After loading up at the Pines, the firefighters pick up groceries including turkeys at Sobeys and Superstore and then it’s off to make the deliveries.

Digby firefighters also staff the canteen at the Legion for the Christmas Daddies show.

It only takes a couple hours and it’s nice to know we’ve done something to help people in our community enjoy the holidays.

Merry Christmas.
