The Ship Bottom Volunteer Fire Co. received fantastic news from the borough council final 7 days: The city is upping its monetary contributions to the volunteer firm, which serves the borough and components of Lengthy Beach Township when giving mutual aid as perfectly.
The news was delivered by Mayor William Huelsenbeck during the council’s April 26 meeting.
“We’ve been scraping by the past few of several years,” Hearth Chief Todd MacLennan explained to the council, thanking the users for the extra money, which can be used to offset operations fees.
Like other volunteer first reaction organizations across the region, the fire firm was pressured to rethink fundraising initiatives in the course of the two-12 months public well being crisis.
The business, which is celebrating its centennial anniversary, will be rolling out fundraising events for the neighborhood periodically this year. For the latest ongoing fundraiser, users of the public can commemorate their very own individual hero by sponsoring an American flag to be shown all through the borough from Memorial Working day through the Fourth of July.
For a $50 donation, persons can honor a veteran, a initially responder, a teacher or anybody they experience would make their lives or the life of other individuals improved. Checks must be produced payable to the Ship Base Volunteer Hearth Co. and mailed to P.O. Box 185, Ship Bottom, N.J. 08008. —G.G.S.
