The Gaithersburg - Washington Grove Volunteer Fire Department is supported by both County tax funds and contributions
from our community. Your contributions are necessary, and welcome, because County funds alone do not approach
meeting the cost of the supplies and equipment needed to serve the 127,000 people in GWGVFD's "first due" area.
To supplement the County funds the GWGVFD solicits funds by mail, in our community newsletter.
We NEVER solicit by telephone and, at the request of our
citizens, we no longer solicit door-to-door.
Donations are used for items such as automatic electronic defibrillators
for our units, backboards and other emergency medical equipment, uniforms
and protective gear. They have also been used to replace and maintain our "canteen" vehicle,
used to provide rehabilitation services on incident scenes, and a Fire
Safety House, to teach fire safety information to children.
Your tax-deductible donations may be sent to:
Gaithersburg - Washington Grove Volunteer Fire Department
P.O. Box 2748
Gaithersburg, MD 20886
