Sears, customers to aid firefighters

Published: Saturday, Dec. 21, 2013 1:15 a.m. CDT

STERLING – Sears Hometown Store of Sterling is partnering with the National Volunteer Fire Council to raise money for the Sterling Fire Department.

This is part of Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores Inc.’s Salute to Local Heroes charity campaign. The objective is to provide money to improve resources for training, equipment, and financial support where local heroes need it most.

Through Dec. 31, customers and company employees will have the opportunity to donate toward the National Volunteer Fire Council, while making a purchase. All money will go directly to the local fire station for that store’s community. In addition, $2 from each Craftsman Bottle Cap Wrench purchase will go to the local department.

After the holiday launch, the company hopes to continue the partnership throughout 2014. Plans will be released at a later date.
