They collected $432.06, which will be given to help the work ofthe soup kitchens. The Huntley Youth are part of a national youth effort to help the nation's soup kitchens. Last year, over 2,400 churches participated in helping theiryouth raise $430,000 to help the nation's soup kitchens. Reports from the national "Souper Bowl Sunday" office in South Carolina as of Jan. 31 indicated that over 3,500 churches' youth have raised $1,135,000 as ofthe end of Jan. Churches will still be reporting for another week, and already the national goal of $ 1,000,000 hasbeen reached. This special "Souper Bowl" effort started in 1990 with one church in South Carolina. Youth across the nation have made this concern for helping soup kitchens into a crusade. The Huntley church youth have participated for the past two years. First Congregational and Trinity Lutheran youth have been working at soup kitchens, and the First Congregationalyouthwillbe working at the Elgin Soup Kettle again on March 16. HFPD recognizes National Burn Awareness Week By Capt. Al Wiesneth Huntley Fire Protection District There are over two-and-a-quarter- millionbum and fire-related injuries each year. If you knew that you could prevent yourself or your loved ones from seriously burned, would you? The National Burn Awareness Coalition advises that education alone could reduce the number of injuries, and deaths, by up to 75%. The Burn Awareness Coalition is comprised of many top burn doctors, nurses, burn foundation leaders, firefighter organizations, and other concerned individuals across the U.S. and Canada who know that education and awareness is the answer. The projected nationwide costs for providing intensive bum care total over $ 1 billion aimually. In addition, young children and older adults are the highest risk groups. Bums are the number onecause of accidental deaths in children under two. Over 100 children a day are being treated in emergency rooms for kitchen and scald bums alone. There are many more frightening statistics. Although medical breakthroughs have increased the survival cun'e amongst bum victims. the size of bums appears to have increased recently for no immediately apparent reason. Feb. 5-12,1996, is being recognized as National Bum Awareness Week, a week that will kick off a year-long, nationwide campaign for burn awareness. Countless injuries and thousands of deaths could be eliminated with a massive and cohesive educational public aware¬ ness campaign. Spearheaded by the Burn Awareness Coalition and Task Force, the 1996 campaign explains that "The worst kind of burn is the one you could have prevented." Everyone can participate in Burn Awareness Week by bum-proofing their homes today to save their families needless injury or death. There are many ways to do this, such as turning water heaters down to 120 degrees, checking smoke detector batteries often, and keeping matches and lighters away from children. Take steps now to prevent the statistics of accidents from increasing. Contact the Huntley Fire Protection Bureau ay (847)669-5066 with any questions.
