Fire Chief, Local 311 Give Boost to School Supply Program

Wednesday, August 15, 2012 - 2:23am

The City of Madison Fire Department is teaming with Fire Fighters Local 311 to provide an extra boost to provide School Supplies for Kids, with a donation of $5,000 from Local 311 Charities.

For two decades, Vogel Brothers Building Company has partnered with Madison Urban Ministry to provide Dane County area school children with school supplies. The program distributes more than $50,000 worth of supplies annually to more than 150 schools in Dane County. In 2012, an estimated 22,000 students will qualify for assistance.

Fire Chief Steve Davis will be joining firefighters from Local 311 on Thursday, August 16, 2:00 p.m. at Vogel Bros., 2701 Packers Ave. to present the check. From there, firefighters and an MFD fire engine will bring in supplies to the East High School distribution point.
