Seeking donations for Fire Safety Education Program for our children

Dear Fire Safety Friends:

The Volunteer Fire Districts of the San Lorenzo Valley has initiated this year’s Fire Safety Education Program for children and families of our community, however, we need your help.

In cooperation with the area schools we will be providing fire safety education materials for our children. These materials have been designed by the National Fire Safety Council, Inc., a federal tax-exempt 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization. This vital program will assist us in teaching children fire safety and burn prevention. We strongly believe that by making children and families aware of fire safety, we can prevent tragic fire losses and deaths.

Our firefighters are confident that fires and fire losses can be prevented if children and their parents can be properly educated on fire safety. Won’t you join us on our objective? To help cover the cost of these materials our department is turning to concerned business, industria l and professional leaders such as yourself. We are requesting your financial support to ensure the success of our program. Suggested sponsorship levels are listed below, and any contribution is greatly appreciated.

20 students @ $60.00
30 students @ $90.00
60 students @ $180.00
75 students @ $225.00
100 students@ $300.00
200 students @ $600.00
500 students @ $1500.00

As an acknowledgement of your generosity, you or your business will be listed as a contributing sponsor on the fire safety manuals under the heading:

“PROVIDED AS A PUBLIC SERVICE BY PEOPLE WHO CARE”
