TIFT CO. - "Window will go right there," Tifton firefighter David Owens makes plans to make the department's model fire station playhouse even better.
It all started with a few two by fours and an idea to raise money to support Irwin, Turner, Worth and TIft County's abused children by making playhouses.
"I really wanted to do something for children and figured this is the best way to help," Cricket Kelley said.
They wanted to make these playhouses as realistic as possible, so that's why they put a smoke detector on each floor and added a fire pole and ladder.
"Really went to great length, to make look good for kids, total team effort of everybody down here," Owens said. "It's something we took a lot of pride in."
Seven groups in all are making casas for CASA, or Court Appointed Special Advocates. The group promotes safe long term homes for abused children.
"We are helping a lot of children who have suffered terrible things, this project will see to it that we can do it another year," CASA Director Don Harris said.
The playhouses will be raffled off, December 7th, with tickets at 5 dollars a piece. All the playhouses should be on display by Thanksgiving at the Tift County Courthouse.
The other groups making playhouses are Tift County Sheriff's Office, First United Methodist Church, Monarch Counseling Center, Hurst Rentals and Century 21.
