Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services is encouraging residents to “Give Burns the Boot” by donating online to a fundraiser to support the Georgia Firefighter Burns Foundation.

Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services is asking the people of Cherokee County to “Give Burns the Boot” virtually this year

Give Burns the Boot is an annual fundraising initiative in which more than 100 fire departments throughout the state of Georgia join together and collect money to benefit the Georgia Firefighters Burn Foundation’s mission and programs. Due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, this year participating agencies are giving burns the “virtual” boot.

Donors can support Cherokee County firefighters and the community. Officials with the department said the process is fast, easy and secure, and residents donating can be sure it will benefit a great cause. Ten percent of all individual donations will be credited to Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services for fire education and prevention in the community.

To donate to the fundraiser, visit www.giveburnstheboot.org. Be sure to put “Cherokee County” in the box where it says, “Would you like to credit this donation to a specific fundraiser or team?”
