House of Coffees is holding a fundraiser on Saturday to benefit the Clements Fire Department.

Each summer, the fire department runs the Kids Don't Float program, offering free life jackets to children who go boating, tubing or swimming in the Mokelumne River. But many jackets are not returned, and the department needs to restock before summer begins.

Bring new or gently used life jackets, or a donation, to the coffee shop between 9 a.m. and noon. Fire Chief Dave Ingrum will add them to the collection in the Clements Fire Department rescue boat in the parking lot. A few firefighters will also stop by throughout the day.

The shop is located at 239 Lakewood Mall, on the corner of Ham Lane and Lockeford Street.
