Duncanville Fire Department Receives Donation from Duncanville American Legion Post 81

American Legion Post 81 Commander Don Bartlett presented the Duncanville Fire Department with $2,150 on Tuesday, August 29. Fire Inspector Pam McAllister, Assistant Fire Chief Greg Chase, and members from the department were in attendance to receive the check. The donation will send four children to Parkland Burn Camp, I-Thonka-Chi, and the rest of the donation will help offset costs of printing the Duncanville Fire Safety Calendar.

The camp enhances and brightens the lives of children who have been affected by the aftermath of fire and allows children hospitalized with burn injuries an opportunity to share time with others who face similar life-altering challenges. Camp I-Thonka-Chi was started in 1992 with an attendance of nine campers.

The Duncanville Fire Safety Tip Calendar Contest is in its third year and offers an opportunity for Duncanville elementary students in grades third through fourth to learn, share and showcase their art skills all while being educated about fire safety. Local businesses and organizations help with calendar costs through sponsorships. All proceeds from calendar sales are donated through the Duncanville Firefighters Association, and on June 6, 2017, the Duncanville Fire Department presented a check for $1,496 to Camp I-Thonka-Chi.

McAllister said she is excited about the program and appreciates the participation from the Duncanville Independent School District.

“Our Fire Prevention office began this program three years ago, and we are very excited to see the growth and interest it has created,” McAllister said. The Legion has played a very big role in supporting this program both financially, as well as physically, and we would not be where we are today without them. Seeing the smiles and excitement on the kid’s faces who create the artwork for the calendar, as well as seeing how it benefits such a wonderful camp for children who have been affected by fire, makes all the hard work of putting this program together worth every bit of it.”
