On August 3rd members of Wooster Firefighters Local 764 attended the summer ACBC. This was our 10th year assisting with camp. 10 members of Local 764 attended serving homemade macaroni and cheese and participating in many activities.


The Aluminum Cans for Burned Children 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. 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 an 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
  • Buehler's Milltown rear parking lot


Thank you for your continued support and contributions.
