Shopping With Firefighters

A few special children are getting a little help just weeks before the gift giving holidays.

A handful of Tallahassee firefighters took time out of their busy Sunday to take 10 children and their parents shopping. Each child was given $100 to pick out items they want and need this holiday season.

TFD hopes this experience will be a lasting one.

"We believe it's a message to these children that there's hope and there's futures for all of them. This is a professional that we believe help people and that they can join with us."

The Children's Home Society helped TFD in selecting the ten needy families. TFD spends the year raising money to help with events like this one.
