Help Palm Bay Firefighters take the fight against child hunger to new heights on Saturday, Nov 11, from 9:00am-noon. This fun event for the young and the young-at-heart, takes place at Walmart at 1040 Malabar Road in Palm Bay and raises money for our kids. Kids will get close-up views of the Ladder Truck and enjoy free helmets, coloring books, and stickers.
Walmart hosts this event to promote a successful Ladder Climb. Each time a Walmart shopper purchases a gift card on behalf of our kids, a Palm Bay Firefighter climbs a 100-foot aerial ladder truck in symbolic appreciation for the donation. Walmart will have food gift cards for sale. The gift cards will be used to purchase food for The Children’s Hunger Project, which provides weekend food packages for local undernourished children who come to school hungry on Monday mornings.
