For 67 years, fire departments have raised millions of dollars for the WHAS Crusade for Children, which distributes funds to schools, hospitals and organizations that provide critical services to children with special needs across Kentucky and Indiana. Traditionally, Crusade Weekend is the first weekend of June. However, due to COVID-19, it was postponed to August 8th & 9th. We are asking you for a special favor this year. More than ever, Crusade funding to its partner organizations is extremely critical, as everyone has been financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Fire departments typically raise 50% of the annual Crusade tote board, but with social distancing in place this year, departments are limited in what they can do to continue this important effort. We want to make sure the children and families impacted by Crusade dollars do not suffer a loss of services.

We know that you, too, have likely been financially impacted by COVID. If you are able, we ask that you please join our campaign and help us help the WHAS Crusade for Children.

Thank you for the continued to support of the crusade kids of Kentucky and Indiana!
