Firefighters raise money for breast cancer foundation

The Ottumwa Fire Department is selling pink shirts to support breast cancer awareness.

Throughout October, the Ottumwa Fire Department is teaming up with the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Currently, firefighters are wearing pink shirts, in support of those with breast cancer.

Members of the community have noticed the special shirts and have asked to purchase them.

The Ottumwa Fire Department is now selling the shirts, with a majority of the proceeds staying in southeast Iowa.

"After we had lots of people that saw them and asked if they could purchase them, we went ahead and decided to order some more. So right now we have a few extra t-shirts left for $15 and all of the proceeds go to Susan G. Komen," said Master Firefighter Bill Keith.

If you are interested in purchasing a shirt, you can contact the Ottumwa Fire Department at 641-683-0666.

The fire department only has a limited amount and are being sold on a first come first serve basis.
