New York Warrior Alliance- 2016
Chili FD is once again sponsoring a collection drive to assist wounded U.S Troops and their families, with various items listed below, as they are recovering from their injuries. The drive runs now through Veterans Day weekend, Saturday, 11/12/16.
Last year Monroe County First Responder Agencies provided an outpouring of support, and we are asking that you once again consider supporting this effort.
Winter clothes are one of the most important items due to the fact that a lot of the family members, who are making the trip to the hospital, are from the Southern States and are not accustomed to the harsh winters up in the North.
Jim Lechner, long time member of the Chili FD, Former Marine, and father of a wounded warrior, will again be delivering these care packages to Walter Reed Hospital.
· FD/EMS Themed T-shirts, sweatshirts/pants, knit hats and jackets.
· Fleece jackets and hooded sweat shirts
· Adult and child's jackets, hats, gloves and scarves.
· Towels, wash cloths and toilet articles for men & women.
** All clothing should be gender neutral, both adults and children, and NEW**
In lieu of cash donations, gift cards to major retail stores (Target, Walmart, etc..) are gladly accepted…
Donations may be dropped off at Chili Fire Department, 3231 Chili Ave.
Or contact the Dispatch Office 889-3760 to arrange pickup of items
