The local Fire Department has always held a special place in my heart. They have been to my home to help my son when he was little and very sick, they've come through our cul-de-sac with Santa on the lighted Fire Truck, and were the kind, comforting and valuable first responders who tried to save my mom after a brain hemorrhage. Sadly, she passed away.
Whenever I see a Fire Truck or Ambulance, I catch myself watching them. Of course, I always pull to the right for their sirens and lights, and when they fly by, I pray where ever the call takes them, they are safe and the person or people in need are ok.
When we were putting together our Holiday Gifts of Kindness plan, it was important to us to include our local Fire Department. Actually, it was a no brainer because personally, and as a Community, we are thankful for their service, and grateful for their presence.
Our Insurance West office is located in the Puyallup, South Hill Neighborhood. We are close to the Mall, Restaurants, a busy area of Meridian, and down the street from Central Pierce Fire and Rescue, Station 66.
We are also down the street from Epic Donuts! With our Holiday Gifts of Kindness thank you's, we partnered with local small businesses and we were happy to have Tom, the owner of Epic Donuts donate one dozen donuts! Tom so kindly donated blueberry glazed donuts, which smelled amazing...
Jessie and I set off with the Blueberry Glazed Epic Donuts and arrived at the Central Pierce Fire and Rescue, Station 66, at 9813 128th Street East in Puyallup.
As we rounded the corner to enter the Fire Station, we saw the roll up door open and a fire fighter working. Jessie and I walked over and introduced ourselves.
As we were explaining our Holidays Gifts of Kindness gift and thanking him for his service, another fire fighter came over. They were so appreciative of the gift of donuts and the kindness we delivered. Kindness does really make a difference!
Sometimes, Kindness thanks Kindness. While putting together this blog, I ran across a story about Station 66 and what they did for a local family after an emergency call. I am truly in awe with the spirit of kindness spreading this Holiday Season.
To the Central Pierce Fire and Rescue, Station 66, we here at Insurane West appreciate each of you, your service and your dedication to help our wonderful community and it's members. Thank you!
