WEIRTON, W.VA.--


In the coming weeks, don’t be surprised if you see a Weirton firefighter donning the color pink while on duty.


Firefighters will be wearing t-shirts the department is selling to raise money for breast cancer awareness and Athena’s Closet.  Athena's Closet a local organization that provides financial assistance to area cancer patients.


This year the t-shirts have a new design, and the department hopes to raise $2,000-$3,000 as they have in years past.


“We like to keep the money local, and to help out the local people here in this community,” firefighter Mike Serafine said.


The shirts are $20 and can be purchased at the Gilson Avenue fire station in Weirton, or at their headquarters behind Main Street.
