Fire department provides funding

The Summerland Fire Department members would like to thank the community for contributing to another successful year with their fifth annual Charity Car wash.

The Summerland Fire Department members would like to thank the community for contributing to another successful year with their fifth annual Charity Car wash.

Jason Hogg, a member of the department now for the last five years, had kick-started the car wash five years ago and helped organize the success of this year’s event.

“Every year we are surprised by the turn out of folks that come by for the car wash.  It is probably the majority of our fund raising for the year, and we are very pleased with the support we get by the community.”

This year’s achievements have been given to the B.C. Cancer Foundation Research for Children with Cancer and The South Okanagan Children’s Charity Playground in Summerland.

The organizations were chosen because of their efforts that they provide for children both with in our community, and with in the Okanagan,” Hogg said.

“Without the help of Nesters team providing the food and staff for the barbecue, Shoppers Drug Mart allowing us to use their parking lot  or the department members who give their weekend day for the car wash, we would probably have a difficult time organizing such a successful event.  It’s a great feeling to know that we can all come together to support these events, and contribute to help those around us.”

The Summerland Fire Department is a paid on-call volunteer department, staffed with four career members.

Any organized events or functions done outside responding to emergencies is done by the members volunteering their own time.
