BEDFORD – Hope Flores wants to celebrate her 50th birthday honoring those that serve.
“My birthday was July 21st, but we are approaching the 20th anniversary of September 11th, and I would like to honor and support those courageous men and women who volunteer for our community – volunteer firefighters,” Flores said.
Flores would like to raise $50,000 for the Lawrence County Volunteer Departments.
Proceeds will purchase much-needed equipment and supplies, added Flores.
“Volunteer fire departments are essential,” added Flores. But their budgets are limited along with their fundraising, but we all can help. Can you imagine? They are called out at all hours of the day and night to help with fires, accidents, during terrible weather incidents, to search for those who are lost or lifting people who have fallen, or to treat those who need medical assistance. They volunteer to do this all.”
You can help Flores celebrate her 50th birthday by mailing a donation to the Lawrence County Community Foundation to the LCCF VFD Fund, PO Box 1235, Bedford IN, 47421.
“Please help my 50th birthday wish come true and help our everyday heroes,” she added.
Donations need to be mailed by the end of August so LCCF can present the needed funds to the VFDs in September.
