The Marion County Fire Rescue is holding its annual Holiday Helpers donation drive. Rescue members will be collecting non-perishable food items, unwrapped toys, jackets, and other warm clothing for children from infants to teenagers. Marion County Fire Rescue Public Education Specialist Peveeta Persaud says they expect an increased demand for supplies because of the difficult economy.[audio:https://www.wuft.org/news/files/2011/11/Persaud1.mp3]
