An eastern Iowa woman is back from a trip to deliver money to a New York fire station that lost all but two of its fire fighters in the World Trade Center collapse.Eldridge firefighters and their wives raised over nine-thousand dollars one weekend in September, and they’ve donated the money to the families of fire fighters who worked in the New York City fire station that houses Engine 54. When the World Trade Center fire call went out, it was shift changing time at the firehouse, and both shifts responded. All 15 men died when the North Tower collapsed. Kim Haycraft, the wife of the Fire Chief in Eldridge, says she gave the money to a firefighter who works in that station, but had September 11th off.Haycraft says the money’s been given directly to the families of the 15 firefighters who died.
