Door to Door Fundraising Efforts Begin
By Assistant Fire Chief Matthew Thews
June 13, 2019

Beginning this week, our annual door-to-door fundraising campaign has gotten underway. You may be receiving a knock at your door and be greeted by a fundraising representative who will be identified as working on behalf of the New Market District VFC. These fundraisers will have an ID badge, Shirt, and vehicle identification that identifies them as such. Please be patient as we conduct this campaign and please donate if you are able.

This fundraiser forms a major part of our fundraising efforts that go directly to supporting the many ongoing projects and functions at the New Market VFD. Some of these projects include:
- the 2013 renovation of the Fire House (under loan)
- the purchase of a new fire engine in 2015 (under loan)
- the purchase of a rescue squad in 2017 (under loan)
- the construction of an auxiliary storage building in 2018
- the renovation of of the social hall bathroom facilities
- the replacement and upgrade of our parking lot surface
- the addition and replacement of numerous support vehicles
- the addition of reserve apparatus in 2019 to serve as back-ups to the front line units

As you can see, we have a lot going on, which is why we need your help. We are a 501 (c)4 organization with deduct-ability, so all of your donations are tax-deductible. Thank you for your kind consideration.

If you have a question or concern about the fundraiser, please send an email to and we will promptly respond to your request. Thank you.
