Preparations underway for Santa’s visit to Superior

Mila Besich-Lira

While most have been busy buying candy, decorating and preparing scary treats, the Superior Fire Department has already been in direct communication with the North Pole.

Santa always makes a very special trip to Superior each Christmas Eve. He takes a break from flying around the world to ride on the fire truck with the Superior Fire Department and personally, hand delivers a small toy to all the children in Superior.

This special trip requires a little extra support from Santa’s elves in Superior. The Fire department is collecting small toys or cash donations to purchase toys to ensure that every child in Superior that evening receives a special gift from Santa.

Donations can be dropped off or mailed to the Superior Fire Department 236 Golf Course Rd. Superior, AZ 85173.

During Christmas Eve, Santa drives around Superior for at least six hours on the fire truck. The fire truck is decorated with over 5,000 lights and includes a special snow machine.

With your help the Superior Fire Department, can meet Santa’s needs and help him make this special trip a success and keep a seven-year community tradition alive.
