EVENT CANCELED DUE TO COVID-19 PANDEMIC/SHELTER-IN-PLACE ORDERS
WFD will be hosting their 12th annual St. Baldrick's Foundation's annual head-shaving event which raises money for children's cancer research. Many of the WFD FF/PMs and their families will be either shaving their own head or supporting those that do! Please join them in this family-friendly event where the tradition of the Chicago Highlanders Pipes and Drums with perform again for the crowd!
To date, this single annual local event has raised more than $500,000.00 to help bring awareness about childhood cancer and, hopefully, fund and find a cure for these kids.
WHH will continue their sponsorship this year with a $2000 donation!! You too can donate to WFD's efforts at the link below.

For the 2nd year in a row, WHH donated $1000 to WFD Local 3079 to purchase $2000 worth of new reading books for our elementary school-aged students in Wheeling, IL. Wheeling's Firefighters partnered with Community Consolidated School district 21 (CCSD21) to arrange delivery to one of the District schools. The kids get to choose from the selections to create their own at-home "libraries"! A couple of FF/PMs stayed to read to the kids!
