WSCFF Burn Foundation Address Correction
September's edition of the Council Connection had the WSCFF's Burn Foundation Address listed incorrect.  Please note the correct address in which to send your local's monthly donation:  WSCFF Burn Foundation, PO BOX 6383, Kent, Washington 98064.  Watch for this month's donation to be returned to you. We apologize for our error.  

IAFF Local I-66 Member Needs Your Support

It is with deep sadness that the WSCFF and IAFF Local I-66 Boeing Fire Fighters request your assistance for one of our members. Lt. Chris and his wife Peggy Brayton's world was forever changed on the morning of August 7, 2016 when they lost their son and grandson in a catastrophic event. The couple along with their families are trying to come to terms with the devastating loss. The Brayton family is emotionally shattered and are at the same time feeling financial implications.  They are currently residing with friends as their home (the place of the tragedy) is inaccessible. 

Local I-66 Boeing Fire Fighters have set up an account to assist the Brayton family.  Donations can be made to the Brayton Family Benevolent Fund, by calling 1-800-233-2328.  Or send your donation to: 

Brayton Family Benevolent Fund
c/o BECU
PO Box 97050
Seattle, WA 98124-9750

A gofundme account has been set up as well.
