Robins Fire Department Wants To Thank Piggy Bank Donors
Do you remember having a piggy bank when you were a kid? I sure do. I don't remember mine getting very full, but it had its share of change and maybe a few bills in it. If I wanted to buy something as a kid, my parents would often say to check and see if I had enough money in my bank to pay for it. One thing I don't remember is ever wanting to donate my money to a great cause. But two girls did just that in Robins this past weekend.
The Robins Fire Department held their annual pancake breakfast fundraiser this past Saturday morning. The event is a major fundraiser for the department. This year, more than 600 people turned out, an increase of over 200 people from last year! But it was two young donors that the department would like to find and recognize. Two young girls donated all of the piggy bank money to the fire department on Saturday. Robins Fire Chief Brian Boots says he's never seen anything like it in his 23 years of working for the department.
So with the help of social media, the Robins Fire Department wants to find the two young girls who emptied their piggy banks. They'll be rewarded with a free fire truck ride and a private tour of the fire station. The girls and their families are asked to contact Robins City Hall to make the arrangements.
Thank you to these two great kids and their parents for setting a great example for the rest of us!
