Kingston Fire & Rescue Car Wash to Support Local United Way

Published on: 2019/09/26 - in News

Kingston Fire & Rescue is holding a car wash and BBQ in support of the local United Way this Friday, September 27, from 10am to 1pm at the Woodbine Firehall (Station #7).

Bring your vehicle to the firehall and have it washed by firefighters. Donations received for both the car wash and BBQ will go to the United Way KFL&A, the official charity supported by the City of Kingston.

“The United Way KFL&A supports thousands of people in our local community by helping them when they need it most, and Kingston Fire & Rescue is proud to do our small part to help.” said Tom Meers, Platoon Chief.

“Since it’s a PA day, we’re encouraging parents and guardians to bring little ones for a fun day,” added Meers. “They can meet firefighters and Sparky, enjoy a hotdog, and take a tour of a firetruck.”

This year, City staff have set a goal this year to fundraise $100,000 for the United Way KFLA.

With support from donors, the United Way invests in 64 community programs that support local residents, helping them when they need it the most. In 2018, United Way local agencies helped 53,323 members of our community through 42 different partner agencies. Learn more about the United WayKFL&A
