Virtual Boot Drive Awareness Days

To make a big splash across the state with a consistent message on safety and to fundraise, we’re
launching a monthly social media campaign designed to provide fire safety education and promote Virtual Boot Drive to raise funds for GFBF and your department. This year, fire departments receive 20% of the funds they raise to use towards fire safety and burn prevention programs in their local communities.

October incentive:

The department with the Most Team Members signed up on your department’s fundraising page will be entered into a raffle to win a Pizza Lunch for 20 at a station designated by the winner.
