Baseball season has begun and a local town thought of a way to enjoy the games and give back.

Trumann Fire Chief Revis Kemper said firefighters will be in charge of concession duty for the upcoming season at Cedar Park. 

He said every dime will go to a family in need.

“Every day we see a family at their worst,” Kemper said.  "That is really what got our guys interested in this. They just want to help more.”

The proceeds will be disbursed to those families for the annual Trumann Santa’s Sleigh Drive.

Kemper said last year they were able to provide for one family.

He said working the concession stands will help them provide Christmas for several more.
