Wichita Fire Department asks your help to support CHRISTMAS IN JULY BOOT BLOCK!
Where: All area Walmarts, Towne East Square. All Dillons only July 13
When: Saturdays July 13th, 20th & 27th 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM
Details: For 32 years, First Responders have collected donations in area intersections to benefit The Salvation Army’s year round programs. Due to safety concerns, construction and potential inclement weather, Firefighters now park their firetrucks in local participating parking lots to collect money. However, this change significantly reduces giving.
Knowing that The Salvation Army is more than Toys and a desire to support ongoing services, we encourage community to stop by the firetruck and drop in cash donations into one of the firefighter boots! It’s a great opportunity to see the equipment up close, say thank you for the sacrificial service of our first responders and help fund the many programs offered by The Salvation Army, such as Homeless Services, Emergency Social Services, Disaster Services and Foster Care/Adoption to name a few.
