WEST BENTON FIREFIGHTERS ASSOCIATION RECEIVES $500 GRANT FROM Shopko Foundation
West Benton Firefighters Association will use a Shopko grant to fund give-a-ways provided at Prosser’s Trunk-or-Treat event
Prosser, Washington – West Benton Firefighters Association, a local non-profit, is pleased to announce it has received a $500.00 grant from the Shopko Foundation. These funds will be used to provide give-a-ways at Prosser’s Trunk-or-Treat event. West Benton Firefighters Association encourages our volunteer firefighters to participate in the “fun for the whole family” event to not only meet our community, but also to familiarize children with firefighters. Oftentimes, children will panic and hide during an emergency, so our intent is to show them that firefighters are real people who want to help them. Having these types of interactions with children during a stress-free, family event, gives children a chance to see firefighters without all their heavy gear on.
