Wooster Firefighters attend ACBC Camp on February 16

ACBC Camp

On February 16, 2020, members of Wooster Firefighters Local 764 attended the Aluminum Cans for Burned Children (ACBC) Camp. This was our 11th year assisting with camp with members of Local 764 serving homemade macaroni and cheese and participating in many activities. 

The ACBC program serves pediatric victims of fire, ages 5 to 16 years of age. The program provides a summer and winter camp for 25 to 30 children annually. The camps are held in February and August each year and last 3 days each. They are each held at Camp Cheerful in Strongsville, OH. We traditionally cook breakfast for the children and counselors. We also help in many different activities from horseback riding to skiing and anything in between. These camps provide them with atmosphere of support and care. Throughout the years of Wooster's attendance, we have seen these children grow. They grow both in size but most importantly in confidence. These camps are made possible by our communities' generous donations.

Please remember our two can collection locations:

  • Wooster City Hall parking lot
  • Buehlers Milltown rear parking lot

Thank you for your continued support and contributions.
