Sears to raise money for charity

Money will go toward Camanche Fire Department

CLINTON — A hardware store in Clinton is partnering with a local fire department to raise money.

The Sears Hometown Store in Clinton is teaming up with the National Volunteer Fire Council to raise money for the Camanche Fire Department as part of Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores, Inc.’s “Salute to Local Heroes” charity campaign. The objective of the campaign is to provide firehouses across the nation with funds to improve resources for training, equipment and financial support.

From now through Dec. 31, Sears Hometown, Sears Home Appliance Showrooms, Sears Appliance and Hardware Stores and Sears Outlet customers and company employees will have the opportunity to donate toward the National Volunteer Fire Council while making a purchase. All contributed funds will go directly to the local fire station for that store’s community. In addition, $2 from each Craftsman Bottle Cap Wrench purchase will be directly donated to the chosen local department.

The campaign focuses on supporting first responders with funds that will go toward purchasing and maintaining the following:

• Equipment including protective gear, rescue tools, medical apparatuses, trucks, thermal imaging devices, etc.

• Response certifications and training

• Medical treatment for injured responders

• Assistance and family support for injured responders

• Building maintenance and refurbishments

“We’re excited to take part in a national campaign that will help us make a deeper connection within our community, while positively impacting it as a whole,” Darrick Bickford, operating owner of Sears Hometown Store of Clinton, said.
