Tifton community donates hundreds of water cases to fire department
Last month, a Tifton woman started asking for water and Gatorade donations for the Tifton Fire Department.
As of Wednesday, it's the biggest donation she's ever had.
For the past eight years, Nicole Casey has been asking for the community's help to help firefighters stock up on water.
So far, she's raised nearly 500 cases of water!
Businesses in Tifton challenged each other to bring as many bottles as they could.
"We see them come in and bring donations day in and day out,” Casey said. “Each day, they're coming in with 20,30, and 40 cases of water. It makes me feel good to know that the community is still behind these guys."
Casey is still taking donations until the end of the month.
You can drop cases at any fire station in Tifton. You can also call Casey at (229)326-0691 and arrange for a pick up.
