Proceeds Will Go To Fire Department To Be Put Toward Cost of New Breathing Packs
Pickton-Pine Forest Volunteer Fire Department officers Monday announced a photo fundraiser in progress.
The fire department has contracted with JBT Marketing, Inc. Representatives of the business will be contacting people in the VFD service area to offer photography lots for $40 for an 8 inch by 11 inch photo.
During the photo shoot, those making a purchase are welcome to as many takes as they want. Prices of photo packages will be discussed at viewing of proofs, according to the announcement.
While visiting home for the fundraiser, JBT Marketing employees will either be wearing a fire department t-shirt or ball cap. They also are supposed to be wearing a traffic vest and name tag identifying themselves as “Representatives.” They may arrive in either a blue 2012 Honda Ridgeline truck or red 2014 Ford Focus.
Profits and proceeds from the fundraiser will go toward fire department equipment to better serve the community. Pickton-Pine Forest VFD is currently in need of replacing our breathing packs for firefighting, which cost approximately $20,000 or more, the fundraiser noted.
Any questions related to the fundraiser, or for additional information about PPFVFD, including how to make a donation to the department, contact PPFVFD Chief Trey Thompson a 903-588-4898.
