Celebrating 45 Years of Service

We were delighted to have Kechi Okwuchi join us for our Big Day of Giving campaign and help us raise over $15,000.00. For those who don't know, Kechi is one of two airplane crash/burn survivors. She is an amazing young woman who inspired many around the world when she became a finalist on America's Got Talent and openly shared herself with millions of viewers.

Kechi will join us again this summer for our Firefighters Kids Camp (July 28 - Aug 3) and inspire our campers who are also burn survivors, ages 6 -17. You can inspire our campers as well by joining us this Saturday, June 23rd at Shriners Hospital for Children for our 7th Annual Tropical Affair, or donate on-line. All proceeds from the live auction will support both of our camps.

Don't let the heat stop you ~ we have ways of helping you stay cool.
