For many seniors and adults with disabilities in Buncombe County, visions of sugarplums do not dance in their heads during the holiday season. They’re dreaming of warm clothes, food and the reassurance that they are not forgotten. According to Roxann Sizemore, supervisor of the Buncombe County Adult Protective Services Department, that's the mission of the Buncombe County Senior Wish Tree project, and it goes beyond wish lists.
In two ceremonies this week, the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation donated a specialized rescue trailer to Asheville Fire and Rescue and automatic defibrillators to Henderson County Schools.

After a fire claimed the life of Capt. Jeff Bowen and injured six other firefighters, Mission Hospital and the Asheville Fire Department have created a Fallen Firefighter Fund to assist the family of Capt. Bowen and the other families of firefighters who suffered injuries in the July 28 fire. The hospital said it will match donations dollar for dollar up to a total of $10,000.
