On Saturday, Dec. 19, the Youngstown Volunteer Fire Co. held a spirited Santa Claus parade on neighborhood streets. The goal was to help brighten the holiday of many impacted by COVID-19.
Families with little ones lined the streets, hoping to catch a glimpse of the man in red as he rode in a “Santa’s Toy Shop” trailer behind a YVFC rescue vehicle.
Also shown with Santa is Gunner, a 7-year-old hound dog who has been residing at the Niagara County SPCA’s no-kill shelter. The YVFC is sponsoring Gunner’s kennel and has put out the challenge to other Niagara County volunteer fire companies to join in the campaign.
