The cold weather didn’t put a chill on the generosity of Mehlville Fire Protection District residents who attended the MFPD’s annual holiday food drive Saturday at Engine House No. 5, 11020 Mueller Road, Green Park. During the event, children visited with Santa and learned about fire safety from district firefighters. The food drive will continue through Thursday, Dec. 19. All canned foods and donations will go to Feed My People. Pictured with Sparky, right, and some young visitors, are: Board of Directors Secretary Ed Ryan and Board of Directors Treasurer Bonnie Stegman.
