Southside Fire makes donation to burn foundation

Posted: Updated:

Southside firefighters and EMS presented the Southeastern Firefighters Burn Foundation with two checks totaling $46,500. 

The money was raised at their eighth annual Fire and Ice Ball that was held in January and from sales of the Men of Southside Fire calendar. Jo Maypole, president of the burn foundation, is thankful for the donation.  

"It's a tremendous value. It's really hard to describe what that means to an organization like ours because we serve about 1,000 quests a year come through our guesthouse, which is where the families of burn patients stay," Maypole said.  

Over the past few years, Southside Fire and EMS has donated more than $250,000 to the Southeastern Firefighters Burn Foundation.
