|Children's groups visit the Shoreline Safety Center|
to learn about fire safety
Every year, the Shoreline Kiwanis Club runs a concession stand at Shoreline Stadium during spring and fall sports.
They feature a "fill the firefighter boot" tip jar available for every patron to deposit their extra change. In 2015, they collected nearly $150 in spare change for the Children's Firehouse and Safety Center in Richmond Beach.
The Kiwanis Club threw in $500 of their own funds to total over $600 in donations to the education and life safety programs for youth provided by Shoreline Fire.
In a letter to the Kiwanis, Community Education Specialist Melanie Granfors said, "We are thrilled to be able to afford some things we could not otherwise buy... Thank you so much, Kiwanis. We appreciate your support!
