    Yep, we do the Goodfellows paper selling. We sell a special printing of the local paper. This is the first year I wonít be able to help out with it. I usually collect just over $100 for a 1-2 hour shift.

    Be careful in the street! Iíve had a few close calls.

    Nope, we never did any charity work thanks to the local.
    When we asked to do a car wash, the local said no.
    When we volunteerd to shovel hydrents in old age complexes,the local said no.
    When we asked to do charity work, the local said no.
    When we asked to get shirts, the local said no--we got'em though.
    When we asked if we could help at the open house,the local said no.
    When we asked if we could help with toys for tots,the local said no.

    Yes, the department union. I say local because there actions are independent of the IAFF as hfd66 clearified for me.
