Santa thanks all in North Arlington who donated food and watched him ride around

Santa and the North Arlington Fire Department would like to thank the children and residents of North Arlington for their generosity in these trying times. This year was the best year ever for the annual food drive.

As the Fire Department brought me through the streets of North Arlington on Saturday, Nov. 25, 2027, seven pickup-truck-loads of food were collected for the Queen of Peace food bank, which so graciously provides food to any borough resident in need.

Santa wishes all of the residents of North Arlington a wonderful and blessed holiday and a healthy and prosperous New Year.
