Hall 6 in Murrayville held its first Candy Cane Walk on Dec. 19

Langley firefighters host neighbourhood food drive

Santa was along for the ride at the first Candy Cane Walk.

Langley Township firefighters based at the Murrayville hall spend the workday helping others.

And like many firefighters, they spend time in their off hours helping others as well.

New this year, the firefighters decided they could help raise food donations and funds for the Langley Food Bank.

The hall’s first Candy Cane Walk was on Dec. 19 and had the fire crews tour around the neighbourhood to collect donations for local charity.

“Our walk was a great success,” said organizer Shawn Saran. “We raised just over $1,600 in cash donations and approximately seven bins of food.”

The plan is to make this a new holiday tradition. Walnut Grove’s firefighters have enjoyed strong community support for several years with an annual food drive.

Saran said the hall plans to work with other local firefighters and halls on holiday activities and helping spread the word about such efforts taking place around the community.
