Firefighters give check to Shriners Hospital for Children
Firefighters in Yuba and Sutter counties presented a check Monday for $40,000 to Shriners Hospitals for Children-Northern California, the region's biggest and busiest pediatric burn center.
The money was raised by the Linda and Marysville Fireman's Associations, working with colleagues from the Marysville-Yuba City area.
The donation was accepted by Dr. David Greenhalgh, chief of burn surgery at Shriners Hospital in Sacramento.
Shriners Hospitals for Children provides a vital service to all residents in the region, said Linda Fire Capt. Tim Taylor in a statement.
"We are proud to support an organization that helps so many," he said.
