The Grand Junction Fire Department in conjunction with International Association of Firefighters (IAFF) Local 2808 and the Grand Junction Fire Fighters Foundation (GJFFF) will once again be making a significant donation to Toys for Tots in our community. This Thursday, December 7th, starting at 0830, the three organizations are expected to spend a combined $5,000 to purchase toys for needy families in our community through a partnership with Wal-Mart and Toys for Tots.
Funds for this event come from the IAFF Local 2808 Charity Golf Tournament ($1,000), The GJFFF Turkey Trot ($1,000), and grant monies from local Wal-Marts ($3,000.)
The Grand Junction Fire Department invites members of the media to join us at Rimrock Wal-Mart Thursday at 0830 to accompany teams of fire fighters and their families in purchasing toys for local families.
