VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Valdosta Firefighters are once again trying to raise money to help child burn victims in South Georgia.
 
It's part of the annual "Give Burns the Boot" program, which raises money to help pay for a week-long recreational camp for children who have been burned by fires.

More than 100 other fire departments across Georgia are also participating in the program.

"For that one week, they're all together and they feel real normal," said John Wisenbaker, Captain with the Valdosta Fire Department. "Basically, it's like a big pep rally all week long for 'em. It's a big, fun time; it's pretty fun to watch." 
 
The firefighters will be out at various location throughout Valdosta from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday.

Below are the locations where the fire fighters will be stationed:

Wal-Mart Supercenter at 340 Norman Drive

Wal-Mart Supercenter at 3274 Perimeter Road (Thursday only)

Harvey's Supermarket at 2111 Bemis Road  (Thursday and Friday only)

Harvey's Supermarket at 4036  Bemis Road (Thursday and Friday only)

Winn Dixie at 1105 Madison HighwayWinn Dixie at 3200 North Ashley Street

Sam's Club at 450 Norman Drive (Friday and Saturday only)

There will also be a Georgia Firefighters Burn Foundation Trailer at the Wal-Mart Supercenter on Norman drive for people to donate or recycle aluminum, which will also be used to help raise money for the camp.
