The Winkler Fire Department has received an early Christmas gift from a local business.

Chief Garry Klassen says the department needed some office furniture for its training instructor and Deputy Chief, but could not afford all that was needed.

He says Earl Braun of Home Furniture in Winkler helped out by donating half of the cost back to the department.

Braun says each year they look at a major project where they can support a local organization.


He adds they want to give back to the community when they can and also recognize the good work that the fire department does in Winkler and the surrounding area.
