Every year, firefighters raise money for the children to help cover some of their needs. This year firefighters raised nearly $6,000.

LFD Captain Michael Book said, “With the money we raised we were able to buy toys for the children, gifts for the home like TVs and video game systems. We provide lunch for the staff as well we believe they deserve a great day as well.”
