The steering committee bought additional items for care packages with the cash donations; or added it to the packages as monetary contributions to the stations. In addition, local schools and camps contributed thank you cards from students to first responders.

“This event is a huge community collaboration,” said Laiton Heckman, 11/30 Network Liaison. “11/30 is
proud to be able to express our deep appreciation for our first responders; and it wouldn’t be possible
without the generous donations from businesses and individuals in Franklin County.”
