When 7 year old Weston Keeton grew up…he wanted to be a firefighter. Although he was called home at such a young age, his family has continued to honor him on the date of his passing.
March 23rd marked Weston’s 2nd “angel-versary” and it also marked the 2nd Annual “Feed the Fire” event. Members throughout communities all across the country gathered meals from local restaurants, home made goodies, Gatorade, and water to name a few items, and delivered them to the firehouse. While there, they also shared the legacy of the Kingsport child, Weston.
Last year, over 100 fire stations were visited and based on the photos/posts on social media…it will continue to grow each year.
Enjoy a few photos of the visits:
This is just amazing that little Weston’s legacy can continue to show signs of compassion, sharing, and love on this day. All in all, Weston’s mother said that over 200 fire stations were visited (that she was aware of) and some of those departments were fed multiple times throughout the day. The event has also expanded to area businesses jumping on board in the Tri-Cities. She stated that locally, Olive Garden in Kingsport, McAlisters in Kingsport, Pop’s, Nick’s Chicken, Chef’s Pizza, Pizza Hut in Gray, Pizza Plus in Jonesborough, Chick-Fil-A at the Pinnacle, and Dominoes in Jonesborough all donated food to assist in #FeedTheFire2016.
The Keeton family also said that they are so very thankful for all the individuals, volunteers, emergency service workers, etc who took the time to remember their angel, Weston.
