Local families will have the opportunity to help local firefighters while receiving a 10×13 portrait of their family in the coming weeks. The Pike Volunteer Emergency Services Booster Organization is sponsoring the fundraiser with Excalibur Central LLC – who are not volunteers in local fire departments – but will go door to door asking for donations. They will be asking for a donation of $40 but will accept any amount, with those who donate receiving a coupon for a family portrait session and a 10×13 photo print. Checks must be made out to PVESBO and proceeds will help purchase needed items for fire stations around the county – including the Meansville Volunteer Fire Station.Â ’In the past, this fundraiser has helped us purchase thermal imagers – which are used for checking behind walls to see if there are hot spots that could start a fire,’ said PVESBO president Teri Totten. ‘We’ve also bought additional gas detectors where needed and Cascade kits which are used to fill air cylinders after they are used.’The photo session dates have not yet been determined and more information will be provided in upcoming editions.Â ’This fundraiser benefits everyone in the county who may be affected by fire,’ said Totten. ‘We hope people will continue to support this fundraiser and enjoy their family photos while helping out the fire departments.’Â Organizers for the fundraiser will visit homes during day and evening hours. Those who are interested in making a donation but have not been contacted can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 770-468-8633.
