EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) - Eau Claire firefighters raised hundreds of dollars for a good cause while delivering Valentine's Day surprises.

The off-duty firefighters delivered flowers and treats from Eau Claire Floral. All their wages and tips went to the Wisconsin Burn Camp.

Eau Claire Floral says the crews made around 100 deliveries. The firefighters say they raised more than $800 for the camp.

Even our own Sarah Stokes was lucky enough to receive one of those bouquets from the firefighters, thanks to her co-anchor and husband, Chris Herzog!
EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) - If you're looking for a way to make your Valentine's Day delivery extra special, Eau Claire Floral is offering up a new fundraiser.

Off-duty Eau Claire firefighters will be delivering flowers for the shop and it's all for a good cause. On Thursday, six firefighters will be going out in pairs, in full uniform, and delivering flowers and gifts to some lucky valentines.

The money that the company pays them will go towards Wisconsin Burn Camp.

Eau Claire firefighter Jeff Dykes told us Monday "it's important for us to help the local businesses around Eau Claire and we have the opportunity to raise money for a dedicated charity such as the Wisconsin Burn Camp. They are helping these poor kids who were burned in fires and make that one special day for them so they can forget their burns and forget their disabilities and just have fun and enjoy themselves like kids are supposed to do."

If you want firefighters to deliver your valentine's surprise, just mention it when you make your order through Eau Claire Floral.
