Cheer Fund deliveries set for Saturday; Volunteers needed

The distribution of Christmas presents by the Columbus Firemen’s Cheer Fund is coming up on Saturday and volunteers are needed to make area children’s holidays brighter.

The Cheer Fund is looking for those interested in making deliveries Saturday morning. No registration is needed and organizers say you can just show up and they will give you directions from there. Capt. Mike Wilson spokesman for the Columbus Fire Department explains:

The doors to begin distributing deliveries open at 8 a.m. but drivers will begin lining up much earlier. The delivery pickup location is at the fire department facility at 2674 Verhulst Street. You will be able to follow the signs off of Middle Road to Verhulst.

The Cheer Fund is the oldest charity in Bartholomew County, operating for 92 years.  Wilson  explains the importance of the community’s efforts to support the Cheer Fund.
