Fundraisers for Fallen Arizona Firefighters

Posted: Updated:

From the North Lake Fire Protection District:

North Lake Fire Protection District firefighters/paramedics will be collecting donations for the families of the fallen firefighters from the Prescott Arizona Fire Department, Granite Mountain Hotshots. During Red, White & Tahoe Blue festivities in Incline Village/Crystal Bay, they will be at various events on July 4th, 5th and 6th asking folks for their support and donations to ‘Fill the Boot'. 100% of any and all donations will go to the families of the fallen firefighters. Working in conjunction with Prescott Firefighter's Charities (a 501-3 (c) Tax ID# 26-2524291), your donation is tax deductible.

Please help us to assist these families during this extremely difficult time. We urge other fire services to assist in this effort to help our fallen brothers. No act of service or donation is too small.
