I am an Advisor for Explorer Post 370, supported by the Austin Fire Department. I am seeking support to help me take a education trip to the 9/11 Memorial. I would like to attend this trip to help share education on the Fire service and the ultimate sacrifice example in hopes to encourage our Explorers one day serve others. I am working to raise the money myself and would appreciate anything you can give. Our trip is scheduled for the summer of 2020. Thank you.
