In 1954, WHAS TV established the Crusade for Children to help better the lives of special needs children in our Community. Over the years, the Fairdale Fire Department has been instrumental in the tradition of helping those in our Community, by helping collect for the Crusade for Chldren to benefit those special needs of our children. Every year, Fairdale Fire stands proud to collect these funds to help better the lives and provide opportunities for less fortunate children. We thank the Community at large for their inspiring generosity, volunteerism, patience and willingness to make an impact on our special needs children of the Community. Your positive efforts continue to leave a lasting mark on those that need it most! Crusade 2017.
