Portal Rescue Donation Drive
Portal Rescue is your community’s life saving and property protecting, all volunteer, emergency service organization. To date this year we demonstrated our motto, “We’re here when you need us” in responding to 13 medical emergencies and three local fires.
It is essential for all who live, work, or recreate in the Portal/Rodeo area to realize the importance of maintaining a rescue organization that is the first responder to medical, fire, and search and rescue emergencies.
Portal Rescue receives no tax money from the county; it depends on fundraising events and donations from you. This year’s donation drive will run through the month of October.
Brochures outlining Portal Rescue’s services and donation forms will be mailed to service area residents, businesses and property owners next week. Please respond with your TAX DEDUCTIBLE donation. For you convenience, here is a donation form you can use. Our goal, to raise $30,000, will be monitored by thermometers at the Portal Post Office and the Rodeo Market/Café.
Let’s all work together to keep Portal Rescue strong!
11/1/13 update – Portal Rescue’s Donation Drive brought in a total of $29,651.90, with additional donations promised for later in the year. Thank you to all who gave so generously. Your donations demonstrate your understanding of the vital role Portal Rescue plays as the first responder to medical, fire and search and rescue emergencies.
