The 3 little Halos fund has been established to support organizations and programs dedicated to promote fire safety, prevention and awareness, as well as other household safety practices.
This fund has been created in memory of Aubrey, Alex and Braden Butler, who passed away in November of 2007 as a result of a fire in their West Chester home. The children’s legacy will continue by assisting organizations that work to ensure a safe environment for children and their families.
Currently, 3 Little Halos is raising funds to build a Safety Town. The town is a small scale city for young children, which is designed to teach all aspects of traffic safety, as well as, fire, water, weather and many other safety concerns for children.
