Build-A-Backpack Campaign

AFD showed up in a big way in the City of Austin Build-A-Backpack campaign! Employees from all divisions in the department came together to recreate the front of a fire truck and build backpacks. On Friday, August 5, 2011, AFD presented 53 backpacks and additional school supplies to the COA Build-A-Back Campaign Coordinator; 53 is significant because it represents each of our fire stations and division locations. Because of your kindness and generosity, we were able to provide the following to AISD students.
  • 9 High School Backpacks
  • 35 Middle School Backpacks
  • 9 Elementary School Backpacks
Your response speaks volumes. Thank you for your support! (Check out some of the photos below.)
