He said donations would be taken for the Georgia Firefighters Burn Foundation (GFBF), a non-profit organization working for more than 25 years to help prevent fire-related injuries and deaths through education.
GFBF follows a threefold mission:
Educate the public in burn awareness and prevention
Support medical facilities in the care of burns in Georgia
Assist burn survivors during their recovery
“The Georgia Firefighters Burn Foundation is also thankful for the support and generosity of firefighters, corporate partners, civic groups, and the many individual contributors who help support our mission. Our success would not be possible without them,” said Dennis J. Gardin, the Foundation’s Executive Director.
