Firefighters help Red Cross

Thomasville-- Thomas County fire and rescue says the Red Cross helps them out.  Now they want to return the favor.  That's why they set up shop in front of Wal-Mart and in the median on Highway 19. 

They held out their boots and hoped for some generous people to pass by. Firefighters say every time they put out a house fire, the Red Cross Wiregrass chapter is always there to help the victims with their immediate needs.  

"Earlier this year, January and February were extremely busy months. And there were a lot of community resources that went back into the community in helping us through that busy time," said Chief Chris Jones with the Thomas County Fire Department.

Now their resources are depleted and they need some extra help. This is day two of the campaign. On Saturday, they raised more than $3,500.
