Make A TAX-DEDUCTIBLE building donation towards the new BCVFD Firehouse
The wide Channel Volunteer Fire Department reacts to more or less 600 fire and ambulance calls annually. The present firehouse located on Noel Road was built in 1905. It was initially developed to house hose wagons. The firehouse was renovated and broadened often times through the years and, due to the building good deal dimensions limitations, we cannot expand the current facility any more. Our present building, as a result of advanced age and heavy use, constantly needs repair works and interest merely to stay functional.
Some years ago, the people in the wide Channel Fire division understood the current building website wouldn't be able to offer the developing measurements of or division. With this thought a building committee had been formed and through special fund-raising efforts the committee surely could buy an appropriate building web site. An architect was employed, programs were drawn, while the division has gone through a lot of the required analysis and endorsement procedures the City of New York requires.
The resources got from our yearly fund drive and periodic grants are not sufficient to cover a spending for this magnitude. Through the efforts of our local Congressman, the Honorable Anthony Weiner and our Senator, the Honorable Hilary Clinton, national funding is appropriated. President Bush finalized PL 109-59 into law in 2005; this law entitles the wide Channel Fire Department access to a considerable amount for building. To access these funds, the BCVFD must add a 20% matching buck amount. We can't access the federal allocation without supplying matching money.

Our other volunteers know how tough it's to increase funds. Our company is maybe not asking for much, a 50-50 within month-to-month meeting or moving the helmet may help greatly.
