On August 2nd, L3518 held our annual blood drive and touch a truck event in connection with UC Health - Air Care and Mobile Care. We had great blood donations and attendance at this event, allowing countless lives to be saved since!

In connection with another wonderful community partner, City Barbeque, we stepped it up a notch this year and also had another fundraiser going on at the same event for the MDA Cincinnati. Today, we were able to, collectively, present a check for $1000 to MDA Cincinnati that had been raised from all of the efforts and donations!!

If you were or were not able to make it for this year’s event, please come out and help us continue these efforts at next years event. You too, can make the difference!!

5 year-old Hunter of Michigan loves firefighters, and today firefighters and police officers from Liberty Township and West Chester showed up in force to help him celebrate his last proton therapy session at Cincinnati Children’s. The first responders, along with Hunter’s family, were on hand as he rang the ceremonial bell signifying his last treatment. Afterwards, Hunter got a tour of the fire trucks and the equipment as well as several gifts to take home. ... See MoreSee Less

Members from Ladder 75 got to be a part of a huge milestone for Hunter today! Along with several other Butler County public safety agencies, the members and family were able to celebrate Hunter’s completion of proton laser therapy at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital due to him having an inoperable brain tumor.

Hunter’s father is a firefighter in Michigan and we are always happy to lend a hand to a fire service brother or sister and their family.

It was an exciting day for the family and our members that concluded with some fun activities and a group lunch at Cabela’s! We would like to wish the entire Haskell family health and safe travels into the future.

Well done by all involved today and a special thank you to Liberty Township Fire Department for the invitation to be involved with this great event!
