Cedar Valley FOOLS donate to burn victims

Posted: Updated:

The Cedar Valley Fraternal Order of Leatherheads or FOOLS were able to raise money for a non-profit organization that helps burn victims.

The group is made up of nearly 14 different fire departments in northeastern Iowa, and they presented a check for $10,500 Saturday in Waterloo.

The money raised will benefit the St. Florian Fire and Burn Foundation.

The foundation was founded in 1993 through efforts of dedicated nurses at the St. Luke's Burn Center and Sioux City Professional Fire Fighters IAFF Local #7.

It was founded with the express purpose of reducing the number of injuries and deaths associated with burn trauma in Sioux City, Iowa and the surrounding communities.

St. Florian Fire and Burn Foundation helped purchase the Children’s Fire Safety House used by the Sioux City Fire Department and visited by thousands of school children annually.
