CC Fire Fighters C.A.R.E. T-shirt Kick Off

CORPUS CHRISTI - From August through October, local firefighters sell t-shirts to raise money for cancer awareness. And it appears to be paying off!

Over the last six years, the Cancer Awareness Relief Effort (C.A.R.E.) has donated over $150,000 to local agencies, including the American Cancer Society, First Friday and Driscoll Children's Hospital, as well as to several local firefighters and their families. This year, they will be adding the Triumph Over Kid Cancer Foundation to the list, and plan to present them with a check on Friday, August 1st at 10:00 AM. The event will take place at the hall of the Corpus Christi Professional Firefighters Association (6014 Ayers). The pink fire truck will also be on hand.

C.A.R.E. shirts may be purchased at the hall Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM. The cost is $12 per shirt for sizes S-XL, and $15 per shirt for sizes XXL-XXXXL.

For additional information, call (361) 814-4437.
