WFFD Goes Pink

Wichita Falls, TX - Wednesday the Wichita Falls Fire Department kicked off its month long T-shirt campaign. Encouraging you to think pink. It's all a part of their month long campaign to raise money and bring awareness about Breast Cancer.

Throughout the month of October Wichita Falls firefighters will be going pink, wearing and selling T-shirts to raise money for two local charities, the Susan G. Komen Foundation Wichita Falls and the American Cancer Society.

Three times throughout the month of October you can join firefighters as they go pink, wearing T-shirts to raise money and awareness for breast cancer.

Last year, the fire department said it raised over $40,000 selling T-shirts and magnetic strips. Since the fire department began this campaign and over 70,000 it began. Maywald said the department hopes to raise even more this year.

"We always try to better than the year before. That's our goal, do better than the year before that's our goal,” said Maywald. “It's up to the community has always been generous."

Anyone interested in purchasing a T-shirt can do so every day between the hours of 8 a.m. - 8 p.m., by visiting fire station No.1 located at 1005 Bluff Street downtown or fire station No. 8 located at 2000 Southwest Parkway.

The cost of T-shirts $15 for adults and $13 for children.
