Fundraiser organized for Bainbridge firefighter
BAINBRIDGE -- The Bainbridge fire chief has organized a fundraiser for the family of a department officer who is facing a tough recovery after a recent illness.
Capt. Mike Games, a 15-year veteran of the Bainbridge Fire Department, has been in St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis for several weeks following a heart attack.
Chief Mike Aynes is organizing a community effort to help Games and his family as they face a long road to recovery.
"The family needs some help, and I'm trying to do what I can," Aynes said.
The chief has organized two ways interested citizens may help support the Games family.
A fund has been set up at Tri-County Bank in Bainbridge to help the family with expenses. Checks may be made out to the Games Family Fund.
Additionally, Aynes is selling T-shirts in support of his colleague. The front of the shirt says "All for one and one for all," while the back features the leather front of Games' helmet featuring his unit number 202 and the words "Bainbridge VFD Captain." The shirts are orange with navy blue ink.
The shirts are available in youth sizes small, medium and large for $13 each and in adult sizes small, medium, large and extra large for $13.
Adult 2XL and 3XL are available for $15.
Orders must be paid in advance and checks should be payable to Mike Aynes. To order, contact Aynes at 720-2866.
