Working with local businesses, firefighters will collect donations at storefronts throughout the county on three consecutive Fridays and Saturdays, weather permitting, beginning May 3-4. Donations will be used for fire safety and prevention education and burn survivor services, according to a county announcement.
Part of the funds raised will be returned to the Forsyth Fire Department to support local education efforts. The giving also will support Camp Oo-U-La, a week-long summer camp for burn-injured children ages 7 to 17 and their siblings. More than 100 departments across Georgia will participate in this year’s fund raising.
