City management asked if the fire department might have a trailer that could be used as a sleigh for the downtown charity toy drive, and this is what they got. A group of dedicated firefighters volunteered to build this sleigh starting from scratch. Painted PVC pipe was used for the runners, and the project was simply amazing. The event was a huge success and many children and charities benefitted from the endeavor. Ocala Firefighters definitely displayed the holiday spirit.
