Firefighters Raise Money for Benevolent Fund

Española Fire Department volunteer Monica George holds a sign at 6 p.m., Aug. 27 asking passing drivers to donate to the union’s boot drive. Firefighter John Wickersham said the drive, which took place at the Riverside Drive and Fairview Drive intersection, raised over $3,351 and he had not counted the coin yet. He said, “This community is amazing.” The money goes into the union’s benevolence fund, which supports the poor and hungry in the Valley.
