HOPEWELL VOLUNTEER FIRE AND RESCUE
P.O. BOX 4033 ANDERSON, SC 29622
To the residences of the Hopewell Fire District and our Business Partners:
We would like to take this opportunity to reintroduce ourselves to you and let you know what your Volunteer Fire Department is doing for our community and what your generous donations have paid and will be paying for because we are your fire department.
As you may or may not know, we are an all-volunteer department. No one is paid for the work they do for the department, no matter what that is. From being Chief, serving on the Board of Directors, and washing the trucks, we donate our talent, time, and personal resources to help our community because we believe in what we do. For most of us it is a calling to help others in ways that most cannot. All our training, though paid for by the county, is on our own time, so we can best serve you. We are the ones that respond to your 911 calls, leaving our families at the dinner table, our children’s ball games and even our warm beds to respond to your needs. When there is a fire, car accident, or medical emergency, often firefighters respond first before EMS can arrive. We do this willingly and are humbled by your gratitude for our service. We not only respond to emergencies but help with community events, parades, public safety, and public education events. Check out our new web page www.hopewellfiredepartment.com for new and updated information about the station.
Having a fully operational volunteer fire department with up-to-date equipment to meet the needs of our ever-growing community takes money and we are reaching out to those we gladly serve and help every day. The money you donate, which is 100% tax deductible, will go a long way to fill in the gaps. It will pay for the firefighter’s protective gear, day to day facility operations, maintenance on the rescue equipment, supplies, facility costs and much, much more. Every donation counts. This year we have a more convenient way for you to make your donation. Please visit www.hopewellfiredepartment.com and click on the "DONATE" tab.
We could not do what we do for the community without your generosity and we sincerely hope that we can count on you again this year to support us in our efforts to serve the Hopewell community.
Thank you for your time and generous donation.
Your Hopewell Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department
Stanley L. Hill
Chairman of the Board
