VIDEO/PHOTOS: When the Huntersville Fire Department sent out letters asking the community for donations to cover the cost of new equipment for firefighters, a 5-year-old broke open his piggy bank to help. Literally. Huntersville fire posted on Facebook that 5-year-old Brian wrote back and included $3 from his piggy bank. His 3-year-old brother Luke threw in another $1.25 for the cause. A drawing was also included with the earnest offering. "I hope this buys you a new fire truck," Brian wrote. As a thank you, the boys and their family were invited to a fire station where they got to meet firefighters and had their pictures taken with the team.
