The Dennison Fire Department began its annual Holiday Food Basket Drive. Last year the department was able to provide food baskets to 100 families, thanks to the donations and kindness of local businesses and individuals. A minimum of 100 families will be helped again this year. All screenings for eligibility will be conducted by the T-4-C Program.

Any contribution to help in purchasing the needed items for the baskets will be appreciated. Make checks payable to Dennison Christmas Basket Fund and mail to 302 Grant St., Dennison, OH 44621. A list of the foods to be distributed is shown below.
