12/13/09 154 W, 1 I - + 11 - 6 Firefighters Raise over $7,000 for Kissinger Family

The Durham Highway Fire Department yesterday sponsored a fundraiser for the family of "Flip" Kissinger at the Harris Teeter grocery store at Strickland and Leesville Roads. He passed away Friday, and is survived by a wife and two children. Durham Highway firefighters and family members were assisted by Raleigh firefighters from Station 18, Station 23, and Station 24. The all-day event raised $7,302, which was delivered to the Raleigh Fire Department.

Says Durham Highway member Michael Greenham, who helped organize the fundraiser, "We know this money will not fill the hole that's been left in the hearts of his family, but we hope they'll accept this gift with the love and respect we have for Flip." NBC 17 also reported on the event. See photos from Lee Wilson.

The Durham Highway Fire Department thanks everyone who contributed, and to all who helped man the boots.
