Lawrence firefighters and paramedics will be asking for donations this weekend for two charity projects.
In one of the projects, called ``Fill the Helmet,'' firefighters will take donations to send children who have received burns or other injuries to a summer camp. That project is being held in conjunction with firefighters collecting donations in Kansas City, Mo., Kansas City, Kan., and Johnson County.
Members the International Association of Firefighters Local No. 1596 also will be raising money for the Muscular Dystrophy Assn. through a car wash.
Both projects will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. today and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday at Checkers Foods, 23rd and Louisiana.
