Charity gun raffle creates concerns
So far, the union has raised $8,000 for “Operation Warm” to give coats to kids in need. Hogg says, “It’s our duty to help give back to the community in multiple different ways. We just feel that part of the core value of the union is to help others.” He believes this gun raffle is a big help to generate money for that.
Join hundreds of fire departments across the country to give brand new coats to children in the communities you protect.
