Eastside Fire & Rescue’s Reindeer Engine is scheduled to deliver holiday cheer — and collect food and toys for families in need — as Christmas approaches.
The fire engine — decked out in blinking lights, reindeer and a sleigh, and a holiday banner — heads to Endeavour Elementary School on Wednesday and then, on Sunday, to Four Lakes, Mirrormont, and other communities in May Valley and on Tiger Mountain.
Residents can donate food and toys Sunday as volunteers from Fire Station 76 on Tiger Mountain drive the Reindeer Engine travels through the communities near Issaquah from 5:30-7 p.m.
The public can also donate food and unwrapped toys at any staffed fire station.
Endeavour Elementary is receiving a special visit from the Reindeer Engine because the Endeavour E-Kids Service and Leadership Club led a schoolwide gift drive to benefit Hopelink.
The visit is meant to recognize the gift drive and allow students to load the gifts onto the Reindeer Engine.
