Each year the Davis Firefighters Local 3494 raise money to buy turkeys and other food for needy families in town. They distribute the food at Thanksgiving time.
This year the Firefighters announced that their fundraising efforts had fallen a couple thousand dollars short.
The Davis Odd Fellows Lodge has come to the rescue and will close 100% of the fundraising gap. The Davis Odd Fellows will provide a check for $2,000 to the Davis Firefighters to meet their goal of providing turkeys and all the fixings to Davis families who need a little help this Thanksgiving.
Vice Grand Lea Rosenberg has arranged for the Lodge to receive $2,000 from a private foundation which will back-fill and reimburse the Lodge for the $2,000 donation to the firefighters.
