Teen Group Raised $2,000 for Philadelphia Trip!!

The Teen Group at the Academy Street Firehouse raised $2,000 at the Fashion Show. The event drew in over 100 supporters, 25 volunteers, and in-kind professional services - all to help the teens get to Philadelphia for their overnight trip later this month. ARFC was honored to host the event, and we will continue to work with the teens throughout the summer as we start our apprenticeship program in July! To help our youth program, consider making a donation to Dr. Z's Firehouse Fund.
