Portal Rescue’s Annual 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 9 medical emergencies and one local fire so far.

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 your convenience, here is a donation form you can use.

This year we are looking to raise $38,700, and have already received $16,000 towards our goal.  This means we are still looking to raise $22,700, which will be monitored by the thermometers at the Portal Post Office and the Rodeo Market/Café.

Let’s all work together to keep Portal Rescue strong!
