“It’s just that we do a lot of fire prevention stuff with children and police do it, too. We just want them not to be afraid to of us in uniform, you know, they can come to us and we help whenever we can wherever we can,” said Tarry Daum, with Emerson Fire.

If you missed them at Hy-Vee, you can still drop off donations at the South Sioux City Law Enforcement Center until December 18.
