Hall County firefighters are working to raise money Saturday and Oct. 20 to help the Georgia Firefighters Burn Foundation.
Firefighters will be at locations throughout the county to collect money as part of the Give Burns the Boot campaign. Last year Hall County Fire Services raised $54,000, with 10 percent returning directly to Hall for fire prevention efforts locally.
The campaign is the biggest fundraiser for the foundation, which provides support to burn survivors, including an annual summer camp for children, as well as fire prevention education.
“This year we would like to top $60,000,” Capt. Scott Cagle said. “We have set our sights high and want to raise as much money as possible in honor of all burn survivors in Hall County and throughout the state of Georgia.”
