Brampton Fire 2018 Breast Cancer Campaign - RS Rescue

Brampton Fire 2018 Breast Cancer Campaign

Hey there!  We recently concluded the BPFFA MD Boot Drive and initial reports indicate approximately $46,000!  Excellent work by everyone!  Glad to see some familiar and new faces out at the locations throughout the city.  

RS Rescue has once again sponsored the Pink Truck Campaign.  We are currently looking for volunteers for our upcoming 2018 Brampton Breast Cancer Campaign.  There are a ton of dates currently scheduled listed below.  Will be a great opportunity to introduce yourself to some Brampton Fire staff that will be participating as well in these events!

This year the proceeds go to Wellspring Chingacousy Centre, a fantastic local support centre for cancer patients and their families.

As always, the BPFFA will provide a letter of reference for your volunteer time to add to your resume.  If you can help, please get a hold of my bud, Chris Vanderburg, who is co-ordinating the volunteers.  Any time you can contribute would be greatly appreciated! 

Thanks all, stay safe and chat soon!  J
