    Default Fill the Boot, Car Wash, Fund Drive, Clothing Drive, etc.

    I figured since many of us are doing some of these things to raise money that we should have a place to put an ad advertising these events for other local departments. I know of at least 15 members from other local departments that read these forums and maybe they can help me and you to spread the word about raising money for NY and DC.

    October 5th 7-9pm and October 7th 10am-2pm
    Busy Bee Parking Lot..exit 11, 78 West
    Fill The Boot and Helmet Drive for FDNY Relief Fund...all money to go the families of our fallen brothers and sisters.

    October 6th 9am-2pm Car Wash Pattenburg Fire, Exit 11, 78 West, go around the circle over the overpass and through the town...we are on the right across from the Pattenburg Tavern. Money also to FDNY Relief Fund

    THANKS!

    I have participated in 2 boot drives. One was with a paid department and they raise $54,000 in cash and checks in 2 days...and still had over 2 5 gallon buckets of change to count.

    The other was with a small volunteer department which rais $7200 in a little over 1/2 day and that also does not include the change to be counted
