Española Firefighters Need Your Help

City of Española firefighters representing the International Association of Firefighters local 4339, are raising funds to assist northern New Mexico breast cancer patients undergoing treatments.  All proceeds from the fund raisers go to the patients.  One of the fund-raising activities is selling tee-shirts which display a pink ribbon and the words “For The Cure” on the back.  The tee shirts are available in pink or black.  So far, the firefighters have raised over two thousand dollars in tee-shirt sales according to Firefighter John Wickersham.

“People at the City and at businesses around town have been buying tee-shirts,” according to Wickersham, “We are seeing a lot of support.”

City of Española employees showed their support by gathering for a group photo at the Fire Station, posing in the tee-shirts each had purchased.

Firefighters will be at Walmart in Española on Saturday, October 24thselling tee-shirts.

In addition to holding boot drives, the firefighters have also partnered with Northern Strides to organize the 2015 Annual Breast Cancer Walk and Golf Tournament which will be held Saturday, October 10th.  For more information regarding the walk and golf tournament, please call Darlene Martinez at 505-699-7755.
