OPH&L 2015 Santa Run

The members of the Oceanport Hook & Ladder have been helping Santa deliver gifts on the fire trucks of Oceanport for many decades. We will, once again, escort Santa this Christmas morning. If you would like Santa to deliver a gift for your child, please fill out the online registration form in the link here.

Gifts must be wrapped or placed in a gift or garbage bag that is clearly marked with your:

  1. Last name
  2. Address Santa will be delivering the gifts to
  3. Children’s names

We ask that each gift is marked with the child’s name as well and that the labels are securely attached and readable. Gifts must be dropped off to the Oceanport Hook & Ladder Firehouse on Saturday December 12th between 9am and 12pm OR Saturday December 19th between 9am and 12pm. We ask for a donation of $5 per gift.
Santa and his elves will deliver the gifts to your children Christmas Morning on the fire truck between the hours of 7am and 11am. Unfortunately, due to the high volume of requests, we are unable to guarantee a certain time of arrival. The Oceanport Hook and Ladder escorts Santa on the west side of town. This is any street west of the railroad tracks crossing Bridgewater’s Dr. and Port Au Peck Ave. This includes Horseneck Point Rd. Our sister company, the Port Au Peck Chemical Hose Co., escorts Santa on the east side of town.
If you have any questions, please email or call 7325426928.
