Council Bluffs Firefighters Raise Money for Wings of Hope
The Council Bluffs Firefighters have been "painting it pink" in Council Bluffs during the month of October for 4 years. In 2010, Randy Schroeder and Captain Jim Maaske were brainstorming ideas and hit upon having the firefighters wear pink t-shirts as a means to raise awareness for breast cancer. With the sale of shirts in the community, they were also able to raise money for agencies who serve cancer patients. They joined just a handful of fire departments across the country showing support with their wardrobe. Since then, many fire departments nation-wide have joined the crusade. However, the Council Bluffs Firefighters remain one of the leading departments in the country for t-shirt sales. Over the past 3 years, they have raised close to $20,000.00.
