If you aren't able to ride in the South Walton Elf Ride then maybe you can participate in the SouthWalton Fire District's annual Angel Tree Program. For the 15th consecutive year, the South Walton Fire District (SWFD) is once again a proud sponsor of the Walton County Caring and Sharing “Angel Tree”. Each holiday season the Angel Tree is filled with names of children throughout Walton County that otherwise may not receive Christmas gifts without your assistance. This year the Fire District will receive over 300 angel names.

“Angels” will be available for selection beginning Friday, November 6, 2015 from 9:00 a.m-4:00 p.m. at Station 3/Headquarters, 911 North County Highway 393, Santa Rosa Beach. 
Gifts may be returned to Station 3/Headquarters no later than Tuesday, December 8, 2015.
For more information or to schedule a special time to select an angel name, please contact Robbie Lund, Administrative Assistant at Station 3/Headquarters, 850-267-1298, via email at or visit our website at
