“Clarksville Fire Department is thrilled to say that this year’s WHAS Crusade for Children drive has been a great success! Through the efforts of our firefighters, their families, volunteers, community business partners and the great citizens of Clarksville, Indiana we were able to raise over $55,232!!We did two weeks worth of roadblocks and 2 weekends knocking on doors. Chicago City Pizza in Clarksville even had some firefighters behind the counter making pizzas and donated 100% of their profits for a day! In addition, people and businesses choose to mail or deliver checks directly to the fire houses, and several of those donations are made in honor of a loved one.”

100% of each donation to the WHAS Crusade for Children helps children with special needs. Through the Crusade, the charity has changed the lives of millions of children in Kentucky and Indiana since 1954.
