Among the organizations looking for donations on Giving Tuesday is the Redding Fire Department. Firefighters say there are items they need that are not provided in the city’s budget. Station 5 at 955 Hartnell Avenue will have a public open house Tuesday from 5 to 7PM. Firefighters will be on hand, as well as lots of equipment, including the ladder truck. The department is gathering funds for additional equipment for vehicle rescues. All funds raised will go directly to the department, not to the city’s general fund. Donations can be made to one or more of 179 local groups online between 6AM and PM at northstategives.org.
