The Whitesboro Volunteer Fire Department Annual Fund Drive will be starting September 9th. Our fire district community has been extremely challenged by the COVID-19 pandemic. For everyone's health and safety, precautions have been taken for our first responders, as well as our community members. Due to these extenuating circumstances, the WVFD has had to modify our approach to the annual fund drive for 2020. Instead of going door-to-door, this year we will be mailing out donation letters with an enclosed envelope that can be mailed back. Each year, we raise funds necessary to ensure that the WVFD can continue to provide you and our entire community with critical Firefighting and Emergency Medical Services. The Whitesboro Volunteer Fire Department, Inc. is a 501(c)3 status, Not For Profit foundation, and therefore, your donation is tax deductible. Your donation is essential to our operations and continued success. Please help us by donating. Thank you!
Due to the health crisis we are currently in, and the unknowns we continue to receive updates on, the members of the Retirement Dinner planning committee for Past Chief Peter Sobel have moved his dinner to Saturday, September 26, 2020. This event will begin at 6:00pm at the Harts Hill Inn. We apologize for this change but in order to honor Pete for his untiring 15 years as Fire Chief and recognize the health issues we face at this time, we believe this is in the best interest of all of us. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Chief George Massarotti. We appreciate you and continue to serve you through these tough days.
We don’t just save lives and property – we also save each of us hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars a year, by providing the most important part of any emergency response – the trained rescuers – for free.
Every day, the dedicated men and women of the Whitesboro Volunteer Fire Department proudly put their lives on hold to answer a neighbor’s call for help – a fact that distinguishes the volunteer fire service from other municipal services.
