After a short delay, the fundraising campaign for a Newberry Springs
emergency first responder has resumed.
The Newberry Springs Community Alliance is continuing its efforts to
participate in a community effort to compensate a local volunteer firefighter for training expenses
for which there were earlier expectations of reimbursement.
Community donations that are passed through the Community Alliance
collection will be matched by a generous community supporter $1 for $1, up to $350 maximum.
To clarify, there are marching funds, for a short term, up to an amount of $350.
A stipulation is that donations must come from the community, not a member of the Owens family.
This is an opportunity to support important training for a member of our fire
department; and in doing so, the community of Newberry Springs that needs trained first responders
on its fire department.
To avoid some earlier concerns that delayed the campaign, those interested
in making a donation, and having their donation matched, are requested to telephone (760) 257-9900.
The matching offer runs until April 20, 2013, or before if the $350 in matching
funds runs out.
The Newberry Springs Community Alliance is acting as a media facilitator
in the promotion of this service.
