Instead of exchanging gifts this year, Bartlett firefighters decided to pool what they would have spent on each other to help families in need. In only one week, members of the Barlett Fire Protection District and Local 3982 raised $1,000.

Members of the fire protection district contacted Hanover Township officials for names of families in need this holiday season and decided to give five families each a $200 gift card.


"The Bartlett Fire District and Local 3982 are extremely excited that our department was able to contribute back to the community during this holiday season," said Lt. Richard Wilson.
