Come Together At Christmas!
Be a Part of This Opportunity to Assist the Georgia Fire Fighters Burn Foundation.
The December GFSA meeting is a holiday gathering hosted by Select GFSA Supplier members. The gathering will be at the Hamilton Mill Golf and Country Club from 2:00 through 6:00 on Tuesday, December 13. The business portion of the meeting will begin at 2:30 and will be very, very brief.
Vendors click here to donate $150.00 to the cause through Paypal.
Everyone’s “ticket” to the event is to bring a small unwrapped child’s gift (see suggestions below) to be donated to the Georgia Fire Fighters Burn Foundation for burn victims and their families. Distribution will be to the children throughout the year in the Georgia Burn Units.
2:35 – 6:00 Hot Hors d’oeuvres and Refreshments

Please limit participation in this event to a maximum of two persons per GFSA membership.
Some gift ideas from the Foundation:
Any toy that has a solid plastic surface that can be wiped down is appreciated. Stuffed animals do not work well.
Small denomination gift cards ($10-$20) for families to use on meals, gas, etc. while they have a loved one in the Burn Center.
Big Lego style blocks: The big blocks that come in zippered bags….not the small Lego pieces. They can’t use the smaller pieces because of the choking hazard.
Mickey Mouse toys
Noise making toys
Board games (Chutes and Ladders, Sorry, Memory, Apples to Apples, Candy Land, etc.)
Toddler push toys (things they can stand behind and navigate)
Rattles (for the little ones)
Please consider toys which would be useful in this environment. Footballs and basketballs don’t work well in a burn unit.
Thank you in advance from the Georgia Firefighters Burn Foundation,
