Shop With A Firefighter Event Held In Findlay

Findlay firefighters helped brighten the holidays for several local kids and their families.

The Findlay Fire Department again this year participated in the Shop With a Firefighter program, in conjunction with Findlay Hope House and Walmart.

Firefighters took the youngsters shopping at the Tiffin Avenue Walmart.

The kids had $200 to spend on their family members and themselves.

And families received an extra $100 to purchase food for a nice Christmas dinner.

Millstream Area Credit Union then wrapped up the gifts for the families.

We spoke with Findlay firefighter Travis Bohn (below) who said it’s one of his favorite events of the year. He said this is the fourth year for him and the department has been participating for more than 20 years.

The Fort Findlay FOP Foundation’s Cops and Kids Go Shopping event will be held on Sunday.
