WNC (WSPA) – Firefighters with the Boteler and Nantahala Branch Fires are asking that, instead of sending them thank you notes, send some to their families instead.
The firefighters have been battling the wildfires in western North Carolina, and haven’t been able to see their families, so they want to do something special.
Boteler and Nantahala Branch Fires posted on their Facebook page, saying that a lot of people want to do something for them, but they want to do something for their families.
They say their families miss them, and they think sending them notes will “put a smile on lots of faces.”
In the Facebook post, they gave instructions of how to do this:
- Write a thank you note (Not to the firefighters, but to their families)
- Put the thank you note in a stamped envelope, write your return address (or not), and leave the “to” name and address blank
They say they will put boxes near the front doors of the Incident Command Posts in Franklin and Hayesville, for you to drop off your notes.
Firefighters will then take the notes and address them to their children, spouses, and other loved ones.
The firefighters expressed their gratitude in the Facebook post, but said they are not asking for anything more for themselves.
Instead, they say their children and grandchildren love to get mail, so they would love to do this for them.
