Volunteer Fire Station Upgrades

$1,665 of $150,000 goal

Raised by 23 people in 58 months
We are a 100% Volunteer Fire Department located in Nolanville Texas. Though we get a small amount annually ($22,000) to provide all facets of Fire / Rescue and EMS/First Responder services to the City (only accounts for less than 4 square miles), we have about 25 Square miles we are directly responsible for. We are the busiest all VFD in the county annually, and provide 24 hour a day, 365 days a year coverage. It is not your typical Volunteer Responders that have to respond from home to the station. Our building was put up in 1990 with little to no upgrades since then. We average 4 to 6 sleeping here at night, sometimes more. The bunkrooms are so small we can't even stand up all the way. The restroom has a stand up shower and 1 toilet. We have a staff of 36 volunteers, including 8 Jr Firefighters. We are a 501 (c)3 registered Tax Exempt entity, and rely on mainly fundraisers and donations to pay the bills, truck payments, maintenance, etc...... As you can see from the photo, we don't even have insulation on our walls. Thank you for your consideration!

Good Morning Central Bell friends, family and supporters! We are over the $700 mark! We have had a fairly successful fund raising drive so far, but here is the challenge..... If just the friends on my facebook page alone would make a commitment to donate just $20 a month, that adds up to, get this, $10,380. A MONTH! In just two months, we would already be at what we get for an entire year from the city! A little more math, that would be, wait for it, $124,560 IN JUST A YEAR! Can you imagine what we would be able to do with that? How many lives saved, properties protected? Advanced training? I mean, for just a commitment of $20 a month? Not everyone can go out and do what we do, but you can assist us and keep us ahead of the curve. This is my challenge to each of you...... Are you up for it?? And remember, being a 501(c)3 Organization means every dollar donated is a tax deduction for you! Thanks for everything. Ready? GO!!!!!!!
