Beginning Saturday, Nov. 12, the Fort Worth Fire Department will open fire stations across the city to serve as drop-off sites for nonprofit donations. Stations will be available as a drop-off site between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. each Saturday.
“We have the opportunity to give back in the communities that we are so proud to serve as a Fire Department,” said Chief Jim Davis. “The weather is getting colder and the holidays are quickly approaching. If we can use our expansive location to coordinate the collection of donations as well as make donations ourselves, we are doing a small part in helping those that need it most right now.”
Stations will collect any unopened, nonperishable and canned good food items that residents would like to donate. They will also be accepting new or gently used cold weather attire, including: jackets, hats, scarves and gloves of all sizes.
“We’re a large city but we’re all neighbors. That is one of the great things about Fort Worth. And neighbors help neighbors,” Davis said.
