Second graders from Faith Christian School spread some holiday cheer to local fire fighters and rescue personnel in Southwest County on Thursday, December 12. As part of a service project the second graders made cookies, sang Christmas Carols, and prepared Christmas cards for various Fire Stations throughout the county. All this was done in order for the kids to share their thankfulness for all that the firefighters and rescue teams do for the Roanoke Valley.
The first station that the group stopped at was the Cave Spring Fire Station on Brambleton Road. Ryan Poff, a firefighter at the station and alumni of Faith Christian School, said, ”it was nice seeing kids from the school that I graduated from and it was nice for them to come out to the community to show their thanks.” Heather Case, the service project coordinator, said, “we are trying to get to as many fire stations as we can today. We wanted to say thank you to these men and women for all their hard work.” After stopping at the Cave Spring Fire Station, the group went to Cave Spring Rescue Squad, Clearbrook Fire Station and Back Creek Fire Station.
