The Citizens' Hose Company No. 1 is conducting its annual Holiday Food Drive. The fire company is again joining local schools in collecting non-perishable food items for the less fortunate this holiday season.

Anyone wishing to donate canned goods may drop them off at the fire station by Friday, Dec. 21. Citizens' Hose Company is located at 103 W. Commerce St. in Smyrna.

Citizens' Hose is asking that if anyone knows of a Smyrna resident who may be less fortunate and in need of assistance to please call the fire station so their name is placed on the list.

All collected food items will be delivered on Saturday, Dec. 22. Any inquiries should be directed to Chairman John Love at Citizens' Hose Company at 653-9858.
