Waterloo firefighters are volunteering their time this weekend to help raise money to build a secondary school in Tanzania.
On Saturday May 26th the Waterloo Professional Fire Fighters Association Local 791 will be washing cars at all four fire stations in Waterloo raising funds for Mom2MomAfrica, a Canadian not-for-profit organization that empowers women and children through education.
