Hutchinson News – April 4, 2017

AT&T is underwriting a text-to-give campaign to support contributions for the Kansas State Firefighters Association and help the rural fire departments that responded to the recent wildfires.

Donations will be used to assist rural Kansas fire departments with training and equipment purchases.

Text WILDFIRES to 80077 to make a $10 donation to the Kansas State Firefighters Association. When prompted, reply to confirm the donation.

Donations sent via text-to-donate are added to a customer’s monthly wireless bill. Participating carriers include all major wireless carriers.

“We are grateful for AT&T’s effort to underwrite this mobile giving campaign, which will help provide support to those that put their lives on the line to respond to these devastating fires,” Eric Voss, vice president, Kansas State Firefighters Association, stated in an AT&T news release.

    I tried to make a donation 2 different times & it would not work, I am an ATT subscriber, I texted the word wildfires to 80077 and it did not work. Unless I am doing something wrong!!
