***Help your community first responders***
With temperatures climbing and the humidity returning during these summer days your local first responders need your help. Every training and every call we respond to the members need to hydrate on these hot days. Each piece of apparatus at Progress has a cooler of water for these hot days for our members and other first responders to have bottled water. We need your help to keep these coolers filled with bottled water.
We are asking the community for donations of a case or more of water. While your out shopping at the grocery store or your local Walmart or Target, think about your local first responders and grab them a case of water. That $5 purchase is very much appreciated on these hot days. When you drop it by, take a look around the station, bring the kids for a tour, talk to your local firemen and see how much they appreciate your donation.
Can’t get to the store but shopping on Amazon.com, add a case to your cart online and have it shipped to 3440 Maple Street Harrisburg, PA 17109.
Don’t live near Progress, that’s fine, think about the closest Fire, EMS, and/or Police Station you pass on your daily commute and drop by and leave them a case of water at their door, we know they will appreciate it also. ... See MoreSee Less
My family is picking up some cases for you today. We will be over shortly to deliver them
