Last week personnel staffing the Watch Office were challenged to come up with an idea to develop a relationship with a school in our County to work with students in need and perhaps get involved in a mentorship program.
The challenge posed by Assistant Fire Chief Deeann Drake has certainly provided motivation and is working, but they need some help. Since last Wednesday, the Watch Office has worked with our County's School Supervisor for student services in conducting a backpack and school supply
drive for children who are in need of assistance, from those who are homeless
to those in group homes and so on. The Watch Office has collected 26
backpacks so far and are working hard for more donations. Consider the donation of backpacks and school supplies in this worthwhile effort by our co-workers.
