Turn In Christmas Basket Applications This Week


The final day to submit an application for the annual Hillsboro Volunteer Fire Department Christmas Basket Program is the end of this week–on Friday, Dec. 10.

Applications are available at the fire department on South Broad Street in Hillsboro, and the program is open to residents of the Hillsboro Fire Department service area, which includes Hillsboro, Schram City and Butler.  Applications may be mailed, or dropped off 24 hours a day at the city hall night deposit slot.

Food baskets will be distributed on Saturday, Dec. 18.  Last year, volunteers delivered over 150 food baskets.

Collection for the annual program continues, and the annual door-to-door pick-up is scheduled for Monday, Dec. 13, beginning when the fire whistle sounds at 6:30 p.m.  To contribute, leave canned goods such as vegetables, soup, tuna, baby food, and other non-perishable items on the front porch on Monday, Dec. 13, with the front porch light on.
