Kilgore Fire Department launched its Special Abilities Family Fun Event —SAFFE Day — in September 2012, aiming to provide a day of free activities custom-tailored for our #EverydayHeroes: for children and adults with special needs and special abilities, for their families and for caregivers.
We’re incredibly grateful for support from local donors and far-flung contributors, as the annual event (celebrating its sixth year in 2017) continues to draw ever-growing crowds to Kilgore and its Downtown Entertainment Corridor on Commerce Street each year on the third weekend in September. Numerous volunteers from many participating organizations help build a day of no-cost handcrafted challenges, teaching fire safety and having fun, welcoming any and all – our #SpecialNeedsHeroes and other guests – to the World’s Richest Acre.
Our goal from the very beginning has been to keep SAFFE Day free for everyone who comes, and we’re holding to that target. But we do need help and we do want to make it easier for donors to support this event.
Will you #BeAHero for SAFFE Day?
