El Paso Fire Department and Irvin High School Team-up for Community Initiative
Recently, members of the El Paso Fire Department and the Irvin High School faculty / staff came together for a charity basketball game and canned food drive. The initiative was a joint project that was created by the Irvin High School Community Service class and the El Paso Firefighters as part of the national "Make a Difference Day."
A canned food donation was required for admission to the event. Result: El Paso's Bravest Firefighters "diffused" the Irvin Rockets faculty by a score of 50-39. School organizers called the "Make a Difference Day" Canned Food Drive/Charity Basketball Game a success, with several hundred cans of food being collected for donation to the Salvation Army, Child Crisis Center and other area agencies.
Special congratulations to all those individuals who helped to organize this amazing event!
