Forsyth Fire Department to hold annual boot drive

Posted:

FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — The Forsyth County Fire Department will join more than 100 fire departments across Georgia to help “Give Burns the Boot” during their upcoming annual boot drive benefiting the Georgia Firefighters Burn Foundation (GFBF).

Motorists can expect to see firefighters at intersections throughout the county on three upcoming

Saturdays, May 3, 10 and 17.

Donations collected during the boot drive will be utilized for fire safety and prevention education, the support of medical facilities, the assistance of burn survivors in their recovery and Camp Oo-U-La, Georgia’s only camp held exclusively for burn-injured children.

A portion of the total funds raised will be returned to the Forsyth County Fire Department to support local fire prevention and education efforts.

A new feature added in 2013 is the option to donate online via the Georgia Firefighters Burn Foundation virtual boot drive.

To give, visit www.giveburnstheboot.org and look for the Forsyth County Fire Department page.
