The annual CVFD fund drive will kick off soon. This year we have partnered with a company that specializes in mail-out fundraisers for volunteer agencies for a more streamlined, professional approach to this vital project. Long time supporters of the department will notice the change in the appearance of the donation request. There will even be a return envelope included.
The department will still keep 100 percent of all donations received, but the reduced work load in the printing, labeling and stamping of each letter is where the benefit to the department really comes into play.
Your financial support is greatly needed by your firefighters. Tropical Storm Michael wreaked havoc throughout Colington, and the department was affected as well. We are still repairing and replacing items that were damaged or lost in the flooding. Donations also help us keep equipment is good working order and replace items no longer usable in our firefighting and life safety role in the community.
Donation requests will be in the mail in early July to all property owners in the CVFD fire district. Thank you in advance for your support!
