BLOSSBURG, Pa. (WETM) – On Friday the Blossburg Fire and Ambulance Department received a $20,000 donation from Ward Manufacturing to help finalize the purchase of new gear for their department members and help the department update equipment, such as new radios.
The donation was a match to the money the department raised in 2020 despite the setbacks of COVID.
“2020 was a rough year in terms of fundraising,” said Blossburg Fire Chief, Andrew O’Connors. “We weren’t able to hold the majority of our regular fundraisers so this donation will help us tremendously. Our department, and Blossburg in general is very fortunate to have such invested partners in our community.”
