Portland Fire & Rescue (PF&R) firefighters will be ringing the bell in front of downtown Macy’s department store on December 15, 16, and 17, 2009 beginning at 11:00 am. The effort is part of the Salvation Army's "Everyday Heroes" campaign that both raises money and allows the public to thank the uniformed men and women who keep them safe everyday.
Look for PF&R firefighters dressed in red and black outside of Macy’s department store
and donate to help support those in need who turn to the Salvation Army for food and toys during the holiday season!
