Trumbull County firefighter unions holding coat drives at local football games
Fall is here, which means temperatures are dropping throughout the Valley. That's why firefighters across Trumbull County are looking to help kids keep warm this fall.
Firefighter unions from Warren, Bazetta Township, Cortland, Girard and Howland will be conducting a joint "Fill the Boot" Campaign at area football games over the next few weeks.
All proceeds collected will be donated to the Live Like Lindsey Campaign to continue efforts into caring for local youth.
Live Like Lindsey was created in remembrance of Lindsey Villanueva, who began her annual coat drive for kids in 2018 until she passed away in 2021. From there, her friends and family took over the coat drive forming Live Like Lindsey LLC.
The drives will be held at the following games:
- Warren G. Harding vs. Cardinal Mooney at Mollenkopf Stadium
- Howland vs. Chaney at Howalnd High School Stadium
- Girard vs. Hubbard at Girard Arrowhead Stadium
- Lakeview vs. Poland at Don Richards Memorial Stadium
- Warren JFK vs. Cleveland Central Catholic at Leopard Stadium (Liberty High School)
The unions hope to coordinate a mass presentation involving all participants to present the Live Like Lindsey organization the following week.
