SARATOGA SPRINGS — On Nov. 20, the Saratoga Springs Firefighters hosted the Saratoga Springs Police Benevolent Association in the annual Saratoga Springs Fire & Police Holiday Hockey Classic benefiting the Franklin Community Center. The PBA “Finest” was able to hold on to an early lead for a 9-6 win over the “Bravest.”
The event was once again a great success as hundreds of toys were collected and will go directly to local families this Christmas season.
As in years past, representatives from both the Fire and Police Departments loaded up a fire engine and multiple police patrol cars and paraded through Downtown Saratoga Springs spreading Christmas joy and delivering the toys to the Franklin Community Center.
The toy delivery took place on Monday, Dec. 6 with an approximate delivery time of 11:30 a.m. at the Franklin Community Center. The fire engine and patrol cars were loaded with toys at the PBA Range on Weibel Avenue, from there they traveled down Lake Avenue to Broadway and from there to the Franklin Community Center.
