LFD donates gifts for 400

The Wilson Post

Members of the Lebanon Fire Department were hard at work yesterday, although they were not extinguishing fires. Instead, the brave men and women who keep our community safe were busy being heroes to children this Christmas.

On Tuesday, they assisted by donating presents they had purchased to Wilson County Christmas For All. Lt. Brian Fountain said that money to fund the donation was collected through road blocks and the golf tournament they held in June. They also set up a donation booth outside of Wal-Mart on Black Friday for anyone wishing to donate gifts for boys and girls.

We bought this stuff for 400 children, Fountain said, although Christmas For All serves many more. Wilson County Christmas For All officer Andy Brummett added that in total they will distribute gifts to 2,200 children this Christmas.
