November 18 - December 12

The Westminster Fire Department is collecting items Nov. 18 through Dec. 13 to distribute to several local charities this holiday season.  New (preferred) or gently-used clothes and toys and non-perishable food items may be dropped off at Westminster fire stations, rec centers, libraries, city hall and other city facilities – just look for the big green bins.  There is a large need for clothes and gifts for children aged 10-18. Bins will be out until close of business Thurs., Dec. 12  then the donations will be collected and sorted for the Have a Heart Project, Jeffco Foster Care, Westminster FISH Food Bank and the Westminster Police Santa Cops program.  Call 303-658-4500 for more information. 

December 1-6 - Santa Visits in Westminster

Santa and his reindeer are gearing up and excited to visit kids in Westminster Dec. 1-6.  If you are interested in receiving a visit, be sure to sign up for the Santa visit lottery.  The Santa program, a tradition of the Westminster Fire Department since 1935, includes the arrival of St. Nick on a fire truck, time for kids to let Santa know their Christmas wishes (and take photos), then good boys and girls receive a candy gift as Santa leaves.  

Visits are scheduled geographically, between 6–8 p.m. from December 1-6. Registration for this program enters households into the lottery system; entries for a Santa visit are ONLY accepted online from 8 a.m., Nov. 1 through 5 p.m., Nov. 15. When registering, provide your full name, address, and phone number (reservations cannot be made without complete information, limit one registration per household).  Updates and registration information will be posted closer to the event sign up period. For questions, please call 303-658-4500.
