Fire departments make the Crusade special

This is why fire departments do so much

Meet Zoe! She’s a shining example of what a difference your Crusade donations can make in the life of a child.

Fire departments raise nearly 60 percent of the Crusade for Children’s donations each year by staging road blocks and other events.

It all started in 1956 when Pleasure Ridge Park Fire Chief Ernie Bohler stood on stage during the third annual Crusade in a steamy un-air-conditioned Memorial Auditorium and challenged all fire departments to join the cause. The challenge was heard loud and clear.

We crusade for them

In its first 64 years, the WHAS Crusade for Children has raised more than $175 million. Thanks to generous contributions of goods and services, the WHAS Crusade is able to return 100% of all donations to organizations that make life better for children with special needs in all 120 Kentucky counties and 50 southern Indiana counties. Fire departments raise more than 50 percent of the money each year by staging road blocks and other events.
