New toy donations needed for Logan Emergency Services Christmas Day Santa Run

The not-for-profit organisation specialises in helping families who have been through a house fire and aim to provide care packs and support for the families immediately, including emergency accommodation, finding permanent accommodation, re-furnishing and getting the family back on their feet.

We started off in 2019, just prior to everything that was happening with COVID,” Louie says.

“It started off small, going around the streets of Logan on Christmas morning with emergency services vehicles in tow throwing lollies out to all the children.
“The end result was that we ended up at the Logan Children’s Hospital handing out gifts to those children that are unfortunately ill and spending the night and day in hospital on Christmas.
“The day really brings a bit of cheer and joy to the local community. Last year when COVID had hit, we did it again under strict COVID rules and we were under police escort, with QLD police, SES firies, and ambulance there too, and this year will be the third year, and it’s just got bigger and bigger.
“We’ll be doing it again on Christmas morning, departing from Woodridge Fore Station at 9am, and we’re anticipating anywhere between 20 to 30 emergency vehicles on the day.”

Louie is now calling on the community to help once again as the team start preparing for the Santa Run.

“Business across lLogan have been fantastic giving us lollies and presents to hand out, and we’re back again for our third event and we’re going to continue this as an annual event,” he says.
If you would like to donate towards the 2021 Logan Emergency Services Santa Run, you can send an email to Louie at admin@LHFSN.com with what you can donate or send a message on Facebook.
