DECA Sponsors Heroes Holiday Fund

Dekalb County police and firefighters.
 By: Julie Erwin 

Neighbors, friends and supporters of Chamblee area first-responders raised more than $1500 during the second annual Heroes Holiday Fund campaign sponsored by the Dresden East Civic Association (DECA).  

In partnership with the Publix at Town Brookhaven, this money will be used to provide Thanksgiving and Christmas meals for the four fire stations that cover the DECA area, including Station 2 on Dresden Drive, Station 8 on Clairmont Road, Station 15 at PDK Airport, and Station 19 at Mercer University. In addition, meals will be provided for the Chamblee Police and the Doraville Police that also provide support to Chamblee.  

According to the National Fire Protection Association, Thanksgiving Day is the peak time for cooking-related fires in homes followed closely by Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Unattended cooking was the leading contributor to these fires so it’s important to be attentive in the kitchen with all the activity during the holiday season. Unfortunately, this means the men and women of the fire department have to sacrifice time with their family to keep us safe.  

This is why Charlotte-ann Rogers originally launched the fundraiser last year – the police and firefighters must work to keep us safe so we want to ensure they get the meal they deserve. Although the effort was lead by DECA, donations came from many other Chamblee neighborhoods including Huntley Hills and Clairmont Terrace. “This was truly a community effort and we are very grateful for all the donations – whether it was $5 or $50,” said Ms. Rogers. Neighbors even stepped up on Facebook to issue matching challenges to help boost the donations. View Full Article With Photos
