Volunteers in Pueblo take in more than $1,300 for the Firefighter Fund, plus a truck load of donations!
They say it's important for people to remember that containment does not mean the fire is out, and there are still hundreds of firefighters that need our help.
"Volunteer fire departments aren't like city fire departments, they don't have a budget," said Kathy Nicholls, organizer of the donation drive. "They rely on grants and donations, and a lot of their fire equipment and their safety equipment has been damaged fighting the Waldo Canyon fire. They have some needs that we're hoping we'll be able to help with, with our cash donations as well."
Several children and teens also made posters for the fire fighters to tell them thank you.
