A Woodstock subdivision donated the money collected through a recent fundraiser to the Georgia Burn Foundation on Friday.
Gail Petrakos, representing the Heron Pond subdivision off of Ga. Highway 92, met with firefighters from Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services Station No. 7 in southeastern Cherokee County Friday to present a check for $3,200 to Cherokee County Fire Safety Educator Beth Elder, which would then be given to the Georgia Burn Foundation.
The Georgia Burn Foundation partners with the fire service and burn care community to provide fire safety and prevention education, support medical facilities and assist burn survivors in their recovery. A portion of the money raised by the Heron Pond subdivision will stay in Cherokee County to assist with local fire education.
