The Seaford Fire Department's annual Tree Lighting ceremony scheduled for this Saturday evening will feature a toy drive benefiting local families whose homes and lives were uprooted by Superstorm Sandy.
Seaford Fire Department spokesman George Kern said this year's annual toy drive will target Seaford families impacted by the superstorm in addition to donating to Nassau County Social Services. Kern said a delivery of toys and gift cards is also expected from the town of Columbia, Tenn.
The Dec. 1 tree lighting is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. and feature traditional holiday music from Seaford High School's band and chorus as well as a performance from the Marianne Anderson School of Dance. Following the lighting of the Christmas Tree, attendees are welcome to pose for pictures with Santa Claus and enjoy hot chocolate and cookies.
