Sisters-area firefighters raise funds for slide victims


It’s been 15 days since a mudslide hit the town of Oso, Wash. On Sunday, Sisters-area firefighters reached out to the community to help raise money for the victims.

The Cloverdale, Black Butte and Sisters-Camp Sherman fire departments held a “Fill the Boot”-style street-side fundraiser to help the hard-hit Washington community.

The volunteer firefighters were stationed in Sisters at Ray’s Food Place, Chevron and at the corner of the Sno-Cap Drive-In to ask the community and passers-by to help the victims up north.

“I mean, that’s just the great part of the community that we’re in,” said Cloverdale fire volunteer Lt. Damon Frutos. “Its neighbor helping neighbor, so even though they’re in Washington, it’s a neighboring state, and people understand that.”

During the four hours they were out on the streets, the fire departments raised over $4,000. That money will be sent Monday to the coastal community bank in Darrington, Wash. All proceeds will go to the victims of the mudslide.
