Helping Hands at Lunch

Hillsboro Fire Department has been attending the Hillsboro Parks and Recreation Summer Outpost program each day this week. Firefighters have been chatting with children and parents about fire safety and letting them take a look at the fire engine or ladder truck in attendance. As described in a post earlier this week, there are arts and crafts programs and activities for the kids each day through the summer.

Firefighters have also been lending a hand this week distributing the summer lunches provided by the Hillsboro School District through a grant from the U. S. Department of Agriculture. On Wednesday for example, there were approximately 460 kids who received lunches through this program.

Thanks to Hillsboro Parks and Recreation for inviting us to the Outpost. It’s always great to talk to the citizens we serve!
