Fairview Township Fire Company posted recently on its Facebook page that residents had been getting calls for donations from an organization called Firefighter Support Foundation.
The foundation is not associated with local fire companies, according to the post.
“The Fire Department conducts one fund drive via mail on an annual basis,” Fairview Township Fire Company wrote. “In addition, we may conduct separate fundraisers such as chicken bbq’s in which all personnel will be clearly identified. We appreciate your continued support and apologize for any confusion.”
