Northfield EMS Hosting Holiday Donation Station

Stop by the EMS building on Saturday and donate clothing, non-perishable food, money or toys and meet emergency officials and the big guy, Santa.

Northfield-area residents won’t have to go far this year to donate, well, just about anything.

The Northfield Hospital & Clinics Emergency Medical Services staff is hosting a holiday donation station on Saturday at their new facility at 1600 Riverview Ln.

There, said EMS Manager Brian Edwards, area residents can donate anything and everything: cash, books, non-perishable food, toys. 

“It doesn’t matter what they drop off … we’ll be able to accept it,” Edwards said.

Everything donated will be split among the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program, the Community Action Center of Northfield and the Northfield food shelf.

He said the Toys for Tots program is run through southern Minnesota, which means all the toys will stay in the area.

At Saturday’s event, which runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., residents will have an opportunity to tour the new EMS station, talk to EMTs, see an ambulance, fire truck and police car, and meet the man himself: Santa Claus, with whom you can take a picture.

Refreshments will also be served.

“We’re excited about it and hope there’s a good turnout,” Edwards said.

The hope is to make the event an annual effort.
