Joplin firefighters raise money for Children's Relief Fund

Updated:

Joplin firefighters spend some down time by giving to area kids.  Today they were at Food 4 Less raising money for the Joplin Professional Firefighters Children's Relief Fund.

Johnsonville and Joplin Food 4 Less donated food items to sell, and any order amount of $50 or more the firefighters will deliver the food within the Joplin area.

They were also taking any amount of donations for the Children's Fund.

"The money that we raise from this will help to buy needy kids presents," says Shannon Branham a driver-engineer for the Joplin Fire Department.  "Also, it will go to our Joplin Fire Explorers, which young kids can come into the fire service and do job shadowing, ages 14 to 20, and kind of see what fire service is all about and see if it's something they would like to do in the future."

The firefighters will be at Joplin Food 4 Less on 32nd Street again Saturday from 9:30 to 4:00.

The Alliance of Southwest Missouri will also be there, fitting and handing out free bike helmets to kids until they run out.
