Last Friday, before their graduation ceremony, Fire Recruits with Cherokee County Fire & Emergency Services traveled to the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Cherokee, located at 1558 Riverstone Parkway in Canton.
Sgt. Nate Sullivan, a fire training officer, said, “The recruits were notified that the urgent care was running low on toys at that location and they took it upon themselves to do a toy drive.” The fire recruits delivered several boxes and bags of toys to the local business at 1 PM last Friday.
Janet Read, Community Outreach Specialist for the Children’s Healthcare, said, “On behalf of the Children's at Cherokee Urgent Care, we are very grateful to the recruits for their generous donation of toys and stuffed animals for our patients. We use these items as gifts for our brave patients who may need treatments such as stitches, X-rays, multiple tests or may have to visit us on their birthday. We are thankful for our first responders for their donation and for the outstanding care they always show our patients if they need to be transported. Children's is proud to be a part of Cherokee County.”
“These young men and women are a group with great character and loving hearts. We are proud to have them now as a part of our team,” said Tim Cavender, spokesperson for Cherokee County Fire & Emergency Services.
