Henderson Professional Fire Fighters (HPFF) teamed up with the Henderson Firefighter Benevolent Association (HFBA) to raise approximately $3,500 to donate to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Firefighters sold “Go Pink for the Cure” t-shirts within the organization and to community members last month. Henderson firefighters are wearing the shirts on duty throughout the month of October to show their support and to help raise awareness.
Tronox donated $300 to the McCaw School of Mines to assist in funding their “Halloween at the Mine” event.
On Oct. 24, from 6 to 9 p.m., the McCaw School of Mines will host a Halloween themed night. There will be tours of the mine, trick or treating, a costume parade and games.
The donation was made in hopes that it will help provide the Henderson community with a fun holiday celebration.
