Milam Farm Bureau donating VFD funds
CAMERON–Milam County Farm Bureau was scheduled to donate $333.34 to each of the county’s volunteer fire departments on Wednes- day, with $ 1 , 0 0 0 contributed by Texa s Farm Bureau (TFB), to help recover resources and funds used to keep the communities safe.
“We are grateful for these firefighters’ tireless efforts to protect our homes, land, animals and families,” Milam County Farm Bureau president Jay Beckhusen said. “With all that they’ve done for our community, this is a very worthy cause.”
The donation was made possible with the help of matching funds from the TFB state office.
TFB committed to match county Farm Bureau donations on a $3 to $1 basis, up to a maximum of $1,000 per volunteer fire department, across the state.
“Volunteer fire departments are ready, at a moments notice, not just to put out fires, but also to prevent them,” Beckhausen said.
“We all owe them a tremendous amount of gratitude for their service and sacrifice.
The checks were to be distributed on July 20 during the Milam County Fire Chief’s Association meeting held at the Cameron Fire Department meeting room.
