Once again, the West Nipissing Santa Fund Telethon reached its goal of $30000.00 for the less fortunate in our community this holiday season.

The West Nipissing Fire and Emergency Services, Volunteer Firefighters and the Santa Fund Telethon organizing committee thank the community for coming through once again with their donations which totaled $31221.66. All money raised goes to the purchase of hampers of food and children’s toys for underprivileged families in West Nipissing.

Pledges can be honoured and donations will still be accepted Monday at Town Hall’s Council Chambers from 8:30 to 4:30 and the rest of the week at Fire Station 1 on Holditch Street which is open 24/7.

Applications for hampers will be accepted at the fire station on Holditch street beginning Dec 1st.
