“We Serve So Others May Live”

 


Dear Friend and Neighbor,                                                                                                                         

The volunteer members of the Newstead Fire Company wish to THANK YOU for your support.  We hope you are able to continue assisting us as you have in the past by supporting our Fund Drive.

Since 1947, the volunteers of the Newstead Fire Company have been protecting the life and property within the district of our growing community.  This past year, our 59 members have responded to 439 calls for emergency medical assistance, fires/hazardous conditions, and fire alarm activations.  Our 100% volunteer members are available to serve you and this community 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Our volunteers are your neighbors.  They are everyday people doing everyday jobs. They are husbands, wives, sons, and daughters.  They are ordinary people doing extraordinary things.

The donations we receive in response to this letter will be a major source of funding for us this year.  Like other fire companies, we have been burdened with unfunded mandates from state and federal governments, increasing fuel and utility costs and the unpredictable nature of fundraisers.  This year alone we estimate a shortfall of approximately $21,000 because we are unable to run two of our major fundraisers due to COVID-19.

Will you please consider helping us continue our services to this great community?  For your convenience, a link is provided at the bottom of this page to process your tax deductible donation.  We thank you in advance for your generosity in supporting our mission of “We Serve So Others May Live”.

We are always looking for new members (starting as young as 14) and have a variety of membership types to suit varying levels of commitment.  Feel free to stop by the station on Monday evenings around 7:00 pm, give us a call at (716) 542-5337 or visit the “Join Us” tab at the top of the page.

Sincerely,

Your Newstead Fire Company Members
