JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- They were not the tools you would
find in a fire station, but it didn't stop firefighters from doing their
part to help.
"This is in my blood and I love it," said District Chief, Neal White.
This group of off-duty firefighters helped renovate the Lilian Sanders
"It's kind of a standard procedure. If we are not on an emergency call
and we see someone in need, we go and help them," said White.
White coordinated the project. "I just made a few phone calls, and the
guys came out in droves wanting to help," he said.
The new nurturing center will help reconnect families who are torn apart
by domestic violence.
"It is amazing when these children walk into a room and say mommy or
daddy, and get to spend time with them," said Executive Director, Stella
"We are all a family and we all just stand beside each other," said
This family of public servants came together to be able to help other
troubled families do the same. Builders Care hopes to have the
construction of the Family Nurturing Center finished by March 1st.
