​Sewanee Operation Noel

Providing Abundant Holidays for All

In just a few weeks, it will be Christmas. While many are already planning ahead about gifts to buy and food to eat, there are those not so fortunate. In our area, there are children who may not get presents and families that may not have an abundant holiday meal.

Sewanee Operation Noel is a group that was formed many years ago by the Sewanee Volunteer Fire Department to provide help for families in need. They provide food and/or toys during the Christmas season. The S.V.F.D. in conjunction with F.R.O.S.T. (Fund Raising Operational Support Team) organizes the purchasing and distribution of goods.

To be eligible, everyone must fill out an application. Every family needs to fill out a new application whether you have received from us before or not. An application will ensure that we have all the pertinent information so we can provide for everyone in need. The deadline for returning applications is Friday, Dec. 13. Families eligible for Operation Noel must live in the following communities: Sewanee, Midway, Jump Off and on Sherwood Road. Please see page 8 of the Nov. 15, 2019 issue for the application.

If you would like to make a donation of money, non-perishable food items or new toys, please take items to the Fire Hall or Police Department, located behind duPont Library or Print Services located in the old Beta House.

Goods will be delivered the morning of Dec. 23 by the S.V.F.D. and F.R.O.S.T. members.

If you have any questions please call 598-3400 and leave a message.
