PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Just days before Sept. 11, there was a very special donation Wednesday in Old City. The Phillies and Toyota dealers in our area came together outside of Ladder 2 to show appreciation for local firefighters.

The Tri-State Toyota Dealers Association presented the Philadelphia Fire Department Foundation with a check for $5,000.

The money will be used to provide personal protective equipment for firefighters to keep them safe from COVID-19.
