Benefit fundraiser being held for South Van Zandt County Volunteer Fire Department
Van Zandt County, Texas (KETK) — The South Van Zandt County Volunteer Fire Department will be holding a benefit fundraiser for the month of November of 2013.
The fire department is in need of funds for a new brush truck to serve a large portion of Van Zandt County.
The prolonged periods of drought in the region increase the need for this equipment.
My Credit Union President, Mark Massey, and SVZVFD President, Jim Meredith, have joined forces to allow residents of the county to contribute to the cause and give thanks for these brave volunteers.
My Credit Union Canton will be hosting a month long fundraiser in November for the SVZVFD to offer thanks and support these public servants. There will be a donation station set up in the lobby of the credit union beginning November 1 through November 30 where members of the county can stop in to make a donation.
On Friday, November 15, volunteer firefighters from the SVZVFD will be at My Credit Union Canton to personally accept donations from the members and county residents who wish to drive thru and drop off their contributions.
All County residents served by these men and women who volunteer their time to insure the safety of the community are encouraged to show their support during this fundraising drive.
My Credit Union Canton lobby is open to accept donations Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and on Fridays from 9:00 a.m to 6:00 p.m.
Donations are also accepted in the drive thru on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
