DEAR FIRE FIGHTER SUPPORTERS:
I would like to personally take this opportunity to thank you for supporting your local firefighters. Your contribution will benefit firefighters throughout Greensboro and Guilford County. With the purchase of these ticket vouchers, you show your support not only for the firefighters, but for your community as well.
The Professional Fire Fighters of Greensboro represents local firefighters, who are employed by the fire department, in their efforts to take a pro-active approach to fire safety and community services throughout Guilford County. We are a non-profit professional organization; therefore, these ticket vouchers are not tax deductible for Federal tax purposes as a charitable contribution, unless you donate your ticket vouchers to a charitable organization. But please be assured the Greensboro firefighters and the community they serve will benefit from your support.
It is important to note that we represent the Career Professional Firefighters themselves (not the government agencies) and do not financially support any volunteer fire departments.
The firefighters of our nation are rated as having the number one most hazardous occupation in terms of death and injury. Working with the citizens of Guilford County, perhaps we can change these statistics.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at (336) 451-0137.
Once again, I thank you for your support. It is friends like you that make a difference.
Vice President, Professional Fire Fighters of Greensboro
