The 25th annual “Santa Run” will take place on Saturday, December 8th starting at dusk (5ish). Presented by the Sooke Firefighter’s Association and IAFF Local 4841, the annual Santa Run is a well-loved holiday tradition in Sooke. Thanks to the collaborative efforts of firefighters from the District of Sooke, Otter Point and East Sooke, much- needed cash and food donations are collected in support of the Sooke Christmas Bureau and local families in need.
Decorated with bright and colourful Christmas lights and playing festive holiday music, four trucks loaded with Santa and helpers will be driving through neighbourhoods to collect cash and food donations. This event is the capstone of the firefighters annual Fill-a-Fire-Truck campaign. Last year, over $100,000 worth of food and cash were donated by caring residents.
