The Whitfield Professional Fire Fighters Association (WPFFA) recently donated $500 to the Anna Shaw Children’s Institute (ASCI). The group recently put together 18 sensory bags to provide to children in the community when needed. Sensory bags help young children to develop their sense of touch and fine motor skills. The bags also can be used to calm children down when first responders arrive in an emergency. After completing the bags, funds were available, and the group decided to donate to ASCI.
