Spring Fund Drive Kicks Off

Page 1 NewsletterThe Charotin Hose Co. No. 1 is excited to kick off the annual Spring Fund Drive.  The Spring Fund Drive is one of the major fundraisers held by the fire department each year. We greatly appreciate the financial support to help us provide the best possible service to the community.

The Spring Fund Drive accounts for nearly 60% of the donations we receive annually. Your donations assist with the general operations of the fire department including the purchase of equipment such as power equipment, hand tools, and fuel; training, education, and state certification of our members; personal protective equipment such as bunker gear, helmets, and air packs, and our free community events such as the Egg Hunt and Secret Santa.

We are asking for a $20 donation however any amount will be greatly appreciated. We understand the difficult economy and tight budgets. We are thankful for any financial support you can provide. Also, keep in mind that all donations to the Charotin Hose Co. No. 1 are tax deductible.

As part of the Spring Fund Drive, we are pleased to announce the inaugural issue of NCFD 18, a biannual newsletter from the Charotin Hose Co. concerning recent events and news at the North Catasauqua Fire Department.  Inside the inaugural issue, you can find information about the Egg Hunt, the upcoming Longaberger Bingo, fire prevention and safety information, the addition of an AED to Attack 1871, and much more.Charotin Hose Co.

North Catasauqua residents will receive a copy of NCFD 18 - Issue 1 near their mailbox in the next two weeks.  Inside will be a donation card and return envelope to be used for the Spring Fund Drive.  The Newsletter can also be downloaded by  clicking the newsletter front page at the top left.

As noted earlier, the Spring Fund Drive accounts for roughly 60% of the annual donations we receive.  Unfortunately, only about 1/3 of households donate.  We can't provide the service without your support.
