Albany  -- Albany firefighters are still hopeful their 2003 calendar will be available to help the city's homeless. These are a sample of photos taken of Albany firefighters for a proposed calendar.

But the city needs nearly $9,000 to print 5,000 calendars. So far they have not raised the money, but still hope to get the project done .

Albany Public Information Manager Kevin Hogencamp said "Certainly it's within reason for us to have it for sale before Christmas, for people who want to look at firefighters and help our homeless population in Albany."

The firefighters' calendars will be sold for $10.00 each, raising nearly $40,000 to support homeless services.

Firefighters hope local businesses will help them raise the needed funds, to get their pictures up on walls around Albany.
