As with many business, our local fire departments have got hit hard with the COVID-19 pandemic. These local fire departments are made up of all volunteers, and rely on the support of our communities to keep them afloat. With the strict guidelines put forth by Governor Wolf most of these department have had to cancel events or totally restructure them. These events make up most of their fundraising throughout the year to cover expenses, provide training, etc.
The sportsmen’s raffle these VFD’s hold every year are typically their single most profitable fundraising event for the year. We ask you that you please support these efforts by purchasing a ticket, volunteer in some capacity, or just making a donation to keep these valuable resources available to our community.
Our VFD’S are a vital part of our community, and we need them. Remember, fighting fires is a small portion of what they do, they provide live saving water rescue’s, respond to car accidents, clear roadways, and much much more. Please consider supporting them!
