Dothan Fire Department makes donation for childhood cancer treatment program

Local News

DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The Dothan Fire Department donated the sales from its childhood cancer awareness shirts to the Alabama Children’s Hospital Wednesday with a total of $3,500.

This is lower than what the department normally raises, as firefighters weren’t able to have their annual Going for the Gold event due to COVID-19.

Despite that, they were still happy to help out the hospital.

“Any time we can raise awareness to childhood cancer and support them with the funds with childhood cancer research, and that’s what we’ve done today,” Battalion Chief David Hasty said. “We’ve donated $3,500 to the Children’s Hospital of Alabama for the developmental therapeutic program.”

Shirts are still for sale at Fire Station One on Columbia Highway.

They cost $15.
