Lake Silkworth Vol. Fire Dept

$260 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 8 people in 13 months
Lake Silkworth Volunteer Fire Department, located in Lehman Twp, Luzerne Co., PA was Chartered on December 22, 1943 and has been serving the Community and providing Mutual Aid in outlying areas for 75 Years!

We are a NON-PROFIT, 100% VOLUNTEER organization with dedicated members.  Headquartered in our current Fire House since the beginning, but the 1940's structure has most certainly seen it's better day and is unable to house the apparatus that we have acquired over time, as it was literally built into the side of a hill, leaving no room for expansion for the larger, modern-day emergency vehicles.

We as well as nearby communities, have all grown in population over the years, making it necessary for us to grow as well, in order to meet the needs and safety of the residents in and around our Rural Area.

Although we do have fundraisers throughout the year, a voluntary subscription drive, etc., they are not nearly enough to substantiate the needed funds for a new building.  We have applied for and rec'd what grants are available to help with start up funds to build (on our own property)....
BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP and are reaching out to EVERYONE!

Our Goal is to Celebrate 75 Years of Dedicated Service in a new Fire House  and with the generosity of those willing to donate, you will help make that dream a reality.

NO amount is too small and every tax-deductible dollar is very much appreciated.  If you are unable to donate, won't you please consider sharing this?

Thank you in advance for anything you can do for us!
Be sure to check our updates posted below, more pictures to explain our cause!

Hi there everyone!
We would really like to break ground and get our new fire station built... but we need your help.

Remember, we don't just ''fight fires'' - here are a few of the things that we, as Volunteers, do:

We are the ones standing in the rain, snow, sleet and yes, the heat!
We are the ones that respond to trees/wires & poles down during the storm!
We are the ones directing traffic to keep you and your loved ones out of harms way at the scene of an accident!
There's more, but those are just a few reasons why we need you to HELP US..HELP YOU!

Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated and if you can't donate, at least consider sharing this with others.
Thank You

Just a few pictures for those that don't know us personally, you'll have a better idea of why we are in such need of a new building.
We currently are right on State Route 29, with little room for safety when pulling out to answer a call.
Inside we can barely fit 4 of our 5 vehicles, as you can see in the photo, one bumper has to be under another in order to close the bay doors. Our Brush truck is housed elsewhere, since there is no room inside :-(
We are reaching out to 'everyone' and asking if you can't donate even a small amount, could you please share this on Facebook, Twitter or by email? Again, thank you in advance !!
