Way to Go Lakeside....!

Lakeside, CA -

On the morning of October 25, 2011,  Lakeside Firefighters hit the streets selling the Kid's NewsDay newspaper in support of patients and families at the Rady Children's Hospital. Crews went to three different locations in Lakeside, Glenview, and the Lake Jennings area. This year's event was coordinated by Fire Engineer Chris Downing

Lakeside Firefighters Rich Smith, Josh Raczka, and Chris Williams at the intersection of Los Coches Rd and Highway 8 Business.
The crews were given until 9:30 a.m. to sell their allotment of newspapers but given the fantastic response by the community, most crews were out of papers by 8:30am.

Rich Smith makes it hard to say NO.
In many cases, people only wanted to contribute to the cause and refused the paper (to be sold later). Others contributed more than the $1 price of the paper. In the end, Lakeside Firefighters delivered $3249 to benefit Rady Children's Hospital!

Nobody is safe from the sales pitch.
The community has always responded to this fundraiser, making the job easy for us. Thanks for the support Lakeside....way to go!
