If you have been watching the news or following other social media sources, you are probably aware of the flyers that a person or business named the Volunteer Firefighting Alliance has been sending out in county asking for donations to be sent to their mail processing center. This is a scam.
We have just gotten word of a possible phone solicitation in our area where someone is calling and asking for donations for the “local fire company”. We have very little information on this, but be assured, this is also a scam.
The Quarryville Fire Company DOES NOT solicit for funds via phone. We DO send our Annual Fund Drive letter in February, and our Annual Picture Fund Drive mailing in September. These mailings will have our name (Quarryville Fire Company) on all envelopes and letters. Our return address is PO Box 143 or 217 East State Street, Quarryville PA 17566. If it does not have these features, then it is not from us. We also send out letters for support for our gun raffles and ham/turkey shoots, and other various events throughout the year, but again, it will all be on official fire company letterhead and signed by a fire company official.
If you have any questions on any solicitations you may receive, send us a photo and we will let you know if it is legitimate.
