Suqualena Fire Department to host fundraiser for firefighter
LAUDERDALE COUNTY, Miss. (WTOK) - The Suqualena Volunteer Fire Department is having a fundraiser this weekend to support a member who lost his home.

Suqualena Fire Chief Barry Hucks said the department is having a donation drive at the fire house and giving away chicken plates.
“People can donate whatever they feel or are able to. We are just going to get what we can and turn it over to him,” Hucks said.
The fundraiser is Saturday, April 10, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. It’ll be at the Suqualena Volunteer Fire Department on Highway 494, right off Highway 19 North. The address is 10432 Hwy 494.
