Donate to Support Our Squad
conduct our annual fund drive in March each year. Every household
and business in our coverage area receives a fund drive letter, a
response card, and a pre-addressed return envelope in which
to mail a charitable donation. We greatly appreciate the
strong response to our annual fund drive as it provides the funds to
cover from 80 % to 90 % of our operating expenses.
also gratefully accept other forms of donations, including donations in
memory of a friend or loved one, donations in appreciation of our
service, and donations of home healthcare equipment in good condition
that we can loan out to others in need.
There are several methods you can use to donate to our squad:
- Return your fund drive response card in the pre-addressed return envelope.
- Mail us a check for non-fund drive related donations. You can find our mailing address on the Contact Us
page and the Home page of this web site. For these donations we
would appreciate a brief note from you explaining the reason for the
donation. We will send you an acknowledgement letter to thank you
and to serve as your receipt for tax purposes.
