ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany firefighters have raised hundreds of dollars just by growing mustaches!
Firefighters began raising money in October to purchase Christmas gifts for kids affected by fires.
Every firefighter who grew a mustache donated one dollar at the beginning of every shift.
And for the firefighters who couldn't grow one, they donated two dollars every shift.
In all, they raised $300 this year.
"Our money that we raised, we decided that if we have a fire in the December time frame, between December 1st and Christmas, and a child is affected and lost some of their Christmas (gifts), we'll replace some of it," said Lt. Joey Rogers.
This was the second year firefighters have participated in a fundraiser like this, and they hope to continue it every year.
