Help Mitch

Our Brother Mitch Winkelmann has been with the Mount Prospect Fire Department and a member of the Mount Prospect Firefighter's Local 4119 for just over two years. Mitch is 25 years old and a newlywed with his wife Sarah.

Yesterday, August 14th, 2021, Mitch suffered a serious spinal cord injury. His prognosis is not entirely known at this time. Mitch's road to recovery will be a difficult one so we are asking you to consider donating to help Mitch and his Wife Sarah. In the meantime, please keep Mitch and his family in your thoughts and prayers while they navigate this difficult transition. We will add more updates about Mitch's progress as more information becomes available. 

You may also mail your donations to Local 4119’s PO Box. Please make checks out to Sarah Winkelmann;
