In response to strong community interest, the Wake Forest Fire Department is now selling custom “Autism Awareness” T-shirts with puzzle lettering for $20 each. Available in a variety of youth and adult sizes, the T-shirts may be ordered and purchased online via credit card at www.wakeforestnc.gov/marketplace. For every T-shirt sold, the WFFD will donate $2 to the Autism Society of NC.

Anyone who orders one or more T-shirts may pick up their order at Station 1, 420 Elm Ave., during the April 16 WFFD Drive By Fish Fry or request to have it shipped to their address.

The WFFD announced in late March that it would support “Autism Awareness Month” throughout April by wearing custom “Autism Awareness” T-shirts. In response to numerous requests by community members to purchase the T-shirts, the fire department agreed to sell the shirts and donate a portion of the proceeds to the Autism Society of NC.

The WFFD’s “Drive By Fish Fry” is scheduled for Friday, April 16, from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. – or until all the fish plates are sold. The drive-thru will be offered along Elm Avenue in front of Fire Station #1, 420 Elm Ave. Dinners are $10 each and will include generous portions of fried flounder, boiled potatoes, coleslaw, and hush puppies. Fish fry proceeds will benefit the Wake Forest Firefighters Foundation. For more information or to order a fish plate, visit www.wakeforestnc.gov/fire/fish-fry
