It isn’t a fire or medical issue that will bring fire fighters to the Christown Mall in Phoenix on Wednesday.

The fire fighters will “Ring the Bell” for the Salvation Army to help raise money for needy families in the Phoenix area.

The fire fighters will surround Christown Mall with kettle pots to help the Salvation Army for three hours Wednesday starting at 3pm.

Despite the struggling economy IAFF affiliates are doing all they can to help families in need.

Many of you have sponsored toy drives and are planning to distribute items to families this week.
