On behalf of the members of the International Association of Fire Fighters Local 4143, I would like to thank the residents and businesses of Montgomery County for supporting our efforts to assist over 100 children through our 2012 Shop with a Fire Fighter program.

Since Local 4143 started our program in 2003, we have been able to assist over 800 children in need. Our program is designed to assist with items that the child needs such as clothing, shoes and other items that we might otherwise take for granted.

We also ensure that all the children have at least one toy before they are done shopping.

Without your generous support, we would not be able to assist the REINdear program of Montgomery County as we have in the past and plan to do in the future. The REINdear program has helped thousands of children in need to have a brighter Christmas.

This speaks volumes for the generous nature of the people of Montgomery County. The look on the faces of the children that we helped with your support cannot be described in words.

We all know the reason for Christmas and with your generous giving, we were able to give to those less fortunate.

Thank you,

Eric Frye
